Penalties for Traffic Violations. The types of penalties you face with a traffic ticket include assessment of motor vehicle points. Once you accumulate 6 or more points, you are subject to surcharges that must be paid to keep your driving privileges from being suspended. If you reach 12 points, your license will be administratively suspended. A conviction for almost any traffic offense also results in fines which can range from less than $50 to more than $1,000 for a more serious charge. Some violations also trigger mandatory suspension of your privileges including one year for a first offense of driving without insurance, up to six months for driving while suspended and two years for possession of cds in a motor vehicle. An individual can even be exposed to a jail term such as 180 days for a third offense of DWI, 14 days for a second offense of driving without insurance and 10 days for a third offense of driving while suspended.
