Maine Point System
 
 
In addition to inflecting these heavy Maine traffic fines, the government also abides by a point system. This means that for each moving violation committed by a driver, a certain number of demerit points are assigned. The first purpose of these is that, if a driver accumulates enough of them, their license is suspended or revoked. For most drivers, 12 points leave a driver with a suspension.
 
 
Here are a few typical Main traffic violations and their associated demerit points:
 
 
Improper passing―6 Points
 
 
Operating Under the Influence―6
 
 
Fleeing the scene of an accident―6 Points
 
 
Speeding limit by less than 15 mph―4 Points
