Under Ohio law, each traffic offense is assigned a certain point value depending on the severity of the violation. The accumulation of 12 points on your driving record within a 2-year period will lead to the suspension of your driver’s license, which can have a serious impact on your personal life, your job and your parental responsibilities. Some traffic violations carry possible jail time and/or a driver’s license suspension as a penalty.
If you have received a traffic citation, don’t think that your only option is to pay the fine and take the points. Traffic violations, like any other offense can be challenged or successfully negotiated to something less severe under the right circumstances.
