Tulsa Attorney BlogWhat’s More Points on your Driver’s License in Oklahoma: Defective Breaks OR Following Too Close?

It’s a Little Counter-Intuitive

wirth lawVideo Transcribed: What’s more points on your driver’s license in Oklahoma, following too closely or driving with defective brakes? I’m Tulsa Traffic Ticket Attorney, James Wirth, and we’re talking about the DPS schedule for points when you get convicted of a traffic offense, and what is more points on your license, what is going to increase your insurance costs more? And we’re talking about specifically, which one is more, following too closely or driving with defective brakes.

Well, it’s a little counter-intuitive, but actually following too closely is two points on your driver’s license, whereas, and I’ll list it exactly how it is in the appendix with a DPS administrative code, operate a vehicle without required brakes or with improper or defective brakes is only one point on your license.

So it’s a little counter-intuitive on that one. Certainly, it would be very dangerous if you were cited for both of those things, but if you’ve got questions about your driving record, you have a pending traffic ticket, you want to avoid points, find out how to get the best result to reduce or to avoid the increase in insurance costs.

You’re going to want to talk to an attorney privately about that. To get something like that scheduled with somebody at my office or if you are facing a traffic violation in Tulsa, you can go online to makelaweasy.com.
