Clearing the Air Tickets Received on a Bike Don’t Put a Point on MVR

Clearing the Air Tickets Received on a Bike Don’t Put a Point on MVR –blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets. 

There is a common misconception that a ticket received on a bicycle could result in a point on your driving record. While true that you could be cited for things such as a red light or a stop sign because many of the vehicle code violations are applicable to bike riders as well, the California DMV makes clear that “Violation points are assigned to Vehicle Code sections….involving safe operation of a motor vehicle.” and “Any violation occurring as a …bicyclist has no point assigned.”

So if you get a ticket on a bike although you may get slapped with an exorbitant fine, you should not be looking at having to worry about any points being added to your driving record and there is no reason to attend traffic school. As a caveat, many police officers aren’t all that savvy on the vehicle code as it relates to bikes.

Before you sign the ticket make sure the officer made some indication on the ticket that you were on a bike. If not then if/when the DMV were to receive notice of the ticket they may assign points to your driving record not knowing you actually got the ticket on a bike. –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
