Traffic Infractions, also called civil infractions, civil offenses, or moving violations, are the least serious type of traffic offense/ticket category. Examples of actions resulting in a traffic infraction ticket being issued include speeding, failing to stop at a sign or signal, failing to use turn signals, burnt-out headlights, tail lights, or brake lights, seat belt violations, illegal parking, and texting while driving.

What is the penalty for traffic infraction?

Traffic infraction penalties typically involve a fine, demerit points on a driver's license, and/or the completion of a traffic or driving school refresher program. Accumulation of demerit points can result in higher insurance rates and license suspension.

Fines can be paid in person, online, or through US mail. A court appearance is typically required only when a driver chooses to contest the ticket.
