When Could I Be Designated a Habitual Traffic Violator?

As you may know, the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) keeps a complete summary of your traffic violations. While the points accumulated for lesser offenses will generally drop off of your record after three years, it is important to understand that your driving privileges could be suspended or revoked if you commit more than one "serious" traffic violation within a 10-year period of time. In fact, your driver's license could be suspended for 5 years, 10 years or even life if the BMV determines that you are a Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV). For this reason, it is highly recommended that you retain the help of a Fort Wayne criminal defense lawyer from my firm as soon as you have been charged with a driving violation that could put you at risk of being designated a habitual offender.

According to Indiana Code 9-30-10-4, you could be designated a Habitual Traffic Violator if you have accumulated at least two of the following judgments within 10 years:

According to Indiana Code 9-30-10-4, you could also be designated a Habitual Traffic Violator if you have accumulated at least three of the following judgments within 10 years:

Finally, you could also be designated a Habitual Traffic Violator if you have accumulated ten or more judgments within 10 years for any type traffic violation (except for parking tickets), and at least one of these judgments was for a violation previously mentioned. If you are in danger of being designated a HTV, it is highly recommended that you take action. With the help of a Fort Wayne criminal defense attorney, you can fight back against the serious legal penalties that you now face.
