Fighting Back Against Driving Violations
Driving is a privilege, not a right. Serious or repeated traffic violations can jeopardize your driving privileges.
The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) assigns points for certain driving infractions, and too many points can lead to a driver’s license suspension or even designation as a habitual traffic offender.
