Class helps ticketed drivers avoid points
Let’s say you get busted for speeding, disobeying a stop sign, or failing to yield. You still have to deal with the ticket by contesting it or paying up. But if you’re eligible you’re going to get a letter in the mail from the state. It’ll tell you about a class you can take online or in a classroom.

Drivers who pass the class within sixty days can avoid getting points put on their records and that helps keep insurance rates low.
The program started in January and more than 1,000 drivers have taken the course so far.
