TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS - Dos and Don'ts ROAD AND TRAFFIC SIGNS BUSINESS LOOP GREEN with WHITE letters for informational signs, such as directions, distances, and places RED with WHITE for stop signs, yield, and forbidden actions (such as No Parking) by Color 17 %24 13 National Forest BLACK with WHITE for commercial, exempt, special, and signs were used in the past BLUE with WHITE for rest areas, food, gasoline or petrol, hospitals, lodging, and other services BROWN with WHITE for signs to parks, historic sites, ski areas, forests, and campgrounds DO NOT PASS WHITE with BLACK (or red letters) for regulatory signs, such as speed limits (or parking) YELLOW with BLACK letters and symbols for warning signs, such as curves and school zones ORANGE with BLACK letters for temporary traffic control zones and detours associated with road construction VIOLATIONS Traffic violations are generally divided into two categories: PARKING VIÓLATIONS and MOVING VIOLATIONS. Though traffic violations can differ from state to state, following is a list of some common infractions and misdemeanors: <3 ONLY Making an illegal turn by turning against a light or against a posted sign. Parking illegally., e.g. in a red zone, taxi or bus zone, temporary zone, or in a disabled parking spot without a disabled sticker on your vehicle. Running a red light. STOP 6> Failing to stop completely at a stop sign before proceeding through. Taking the right-of-way when it belonged to another driver. Changing lanes without using the turn indicator. Using the diamond or carpool lane without sufficient passengers. Driving a vehicle without properly functioning turn signals and brake lights. Driving at night without headlights. Transporting an oversized load in an unsafe manner. 107 Hitting another vehicle, be it parked or moving. Moving violations are the more serious of the two, carry stiffer penalties, and occur while the vehicle is in motion. If a driver is ticketed with moving traffic violations, these count as strikes against his or her safety record. Too many strikes within a short period of time can substantially raise the driver's insurance premium, cause the insurance carrier to drop the insured, and even result in suspension of a driver's license. For less serious traffic violations, the offender can sometimes opt for traffic school in order to avoid a strike on his or her record. Traffic school requires several hours of attendance followed by a test. Upon successful completion, the court will remove the violation from record. POINTS SYSTEMS (EXAMPLES) Less serious offenses earn 1 point, which remains for three years. A driver is considered negligent if they accumulate: 4 points in 12 months, or 6 points in 24 months, or 8 points in 36 months OR Negligent drivers can be put on probation for one year (including a six month suspension) or lose their privilege to drive. At the end of the suspension or revocation period, drivers need to re-apply for a license to dirive.
