Our goal is to provide you with compassionate, timely, and professional service while decreasing the amount of license and/or insurance points that can come from pleading guilty (or paying off) a speeding ticket.

In order for us to be transparent and for you to be informed about your ticket, we have provided some helpful information about traffic violations.

No SDIP Points will be charged for:

  • An accident provided all of the following are true:
    • There is property damage only
    • The amount of damage is $1,800 or less
    • There is no conviction for a moving violation in connection with the accident; and
    • No licensed operators in the household have convictions or at-fault accidents during the experience period. (An insurance company may require that the insured be covered by that company for six continuous months.)
  • Speeding 10 mph or less over the posted speed limit; provided all of the following are true:
    • The violation did not occur in a school zone; and
    • There is not another moving traffic violation for the experience period (an isolated Prayer for Judgement Continued [PJC] will not count as a prior conviction for the purpose of this exception).
  • One PJC for each household every three years; however:
    • A second PJC may cause points to be charged according to the underlying convictions.
