Points for Bicyclists’ Violations
RC asked: Can conviction of a moving violation by a bicyclist result in points on that person’s driver’s license?
No. The point system is established for violations by motor vehicle operators, which requires a driver’s license. Bicycles are not motor vehicles and violations are specifically excluded from that system since no license is required.
