New Law Will Allow Drivers to Remove Points from Their Licenses

1 comment

A newly effective law in Michigan will allow drivers to erase certain penalties from their records. If a driver is willing to take a driver-improvement course – either online or in a classroom – certain minor offenses will not result in points being placed on his or her driver’s license.

The new law is one of many passed in recent months aimed at enhancing driver safety. Unlike most of the others, however, this law seeks to change and improve driver behavior rather than simply punishing the offender.

    A ticket serves as a reality jolt. I work for a state approved Basic Driver Improvement Course provider. Michigan Drive Safe (http://MIDriveSafe.com) is offered by O/E Learning, a Michigan-based company, and we believe that a program that includes reeducation will make Michigan drivers and roads safer. One study in Illinois showed that over 70% of the drivers who participated in a driver safety training program had zero future collisions and violations over a nine-year period. Ticketed drivers under this new Michigan law can save as much as $300 to $500 per year on insurance premiums, which are typically higher for at least three years after a speeding ticket.
