Violating Kansas driving and traffic laws can result in fines, the suspension of your driving privileges, and even imprisonment. However, Kansas Division of Motor Vehicle (DMV) does not use a point system to track violations. Specific violations are given specific penalties.
If you are convicted of three major traffic violations in a year's time, you license may be revoked or suspended.
Your license may be revoked if convicted of moving violations like felonies using a vehicle, reckless driving or avoiding a police officer.
Different violations are assigned different fines set by the Kansas state legislature. For a list of traffic violations and the fines they will incur see Kansas statutes 8-2118.
YOUR DRIVING RECORD
The Kansas DMV maintains a record of your driving history. You can check the status of your driving record and get a copy by going to any driver license exam station in Kansas or by mail. Auto insurance companies use this data while assessing insurance rates, so the better your record the better your rates.
HOW TO DISPUTE A MOVING VIOLATION CHARGE
If you believe you have been incorrectly charged with committing a moving violation, you may be able to fight the charge in court. See Traffic Tickets and Traffic Ticket Attorneys for more information.
