“I received a traffic ticket coming through North Carolina . I live in another state. Is the North Carolina ticket going to affect my insurance?”
This is a common question, one that the traffic lawyers of Rosensteel Fleishman, PLLC hear almost everyday. The answer to the question can be found by examining the Nonresident Violator Compact and your local Department of Motor Vehicles.
This act, which has been adopted by almost all the 50 states, allows the home state to suspend the driver’s license of an individual who fails to comply with a member state citation. A list of member states can be found at: Nonresident Violator Compact. Further, speeding violations over 20mph can result in the suspension of your NC driver’s license. Out of state residence face the risk that their local driver’s license could be suspended as well upon transfer to their local DMV.
While your Department of Motor Vehicles probably will become aware of the citation in North Carolina, the question of how the citation will affect your insurance depends on your local DMV.
