Drivers: Make Sure You Know All Of Michigan’s 6 Point Violations
Most of us have driven so long we've forgotten how the point system works for Michigan drivers. The upside to forgetting them is, you're probably not a terrible driver. For those getting cursed out by the car behind them on a regular basis, you might want to keep this info handy.
How many points until your Michigan Driver's License is suspended?
- If you've gotten a speeding ticket for 6-10 over the limit, it's a couple of points. Or, forgetting to use your blinker, taillight out...same thing. When you make it to 12 points in two years, your license is suspended in the State of Michigan.
What are all of the 6-point driving violations in Michigan?
A couple of these in a short window and you won't be driving in Michigan.
- Moving violation causing injury, death
- Failure to yield causing death or injury of emergency responder, construction worker or person operating implements of animal husbandry (think giant farm vehicles).
- Fleeing or eluding an officer
- Refusing to take a chemical alcohol test
- Reckless driving.
- Failing to stop and give ID at the scene of an accident or crash.
- Operating a motor vehicle while drunk or any Schedule 1 drug or cocaine.
- Manslaughter, negligent homicide or other felony involving use of a motor vehicle.
Oddly, drag racing or driving 16mph or more over the posted speed limit is only a 4-point violation.
