Bloom Legal Guide: Louisiana Traffic Violations
Posted on Feb 21, 2014 in Local Issues, NOPD, Traffic
The ramifications of a traffic ticket far exceed court costs and fees, which can add up and become very costly. When you are convicted of a traffic violation this goes on your driving record and could increase your insurance premiums from 25% to 400%. Many clients ask if they can just plead guilty, pay the ticket and be done. However, traffic violations will follow you for years and can cause increased penalties for any future violations.
Louisiana doesn’t have a state-based point system, but it is a participant of the Problem Driver Pointer System. The PDPS is a component of the National Driver Register (NDR). The National Driver Register (NDR) is a computerized database of information about drivers who have had their licenses revoked or suspended, or who have been convicted of traffic violations. So any traffic convictions, will appear on your National Driver Register and be used against you for insurance purposes.
