The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) has proposed a revised Traffic Violations Points Table. The proposal is contained in a proposed rule posted on April 28. The BMV has scheduled a public hearing for May 27.
The BMV’s proposal includes the following:
- ADDS section including points for excessive speed in a school zone.
- ADDS section including points for excessive speed in a work site.
- REVISES the current language associated with texting while driving to associate with the 2019 law change disallowing use of handheld devices while driving.
Proposed points for excessive speed ranges and associated points for school and work sites are: 1-15 mph 4 points, 16-25 mph 6 points, and over 25 mph 8 points. Accumulating 20 points will result in a one-month suspension. The state may already impose a 60-day license suspension under Indiana Code 9-21-5-11(f) and 9-30-13-9 after two or more violations within a work site within one year.
