Point System – North Carolina

The North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles uses a point system to deter unsafe drivers. Motor vehicle violations that get points assigned to them indicate the driver was driving improperly. Driving improperly can cause motor vehicle accidents resulting in injuries to passengers and other drivers. These passengers and drivers will have the right to sue for pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages against the driver who violated the motor vehicle laws.
