Traffic Tickets in Oklahoma
If you break a traffic law and it is witnessed by a peace officer, you will likely receive either a verbal warning from the officer or you will be ticketed.
A ticket is a legal document charging a person with a violation of a municipal ordinance.
If you have been stopped by a law enforcement agent and s/he indicates that you will be ticketed, do not argue, fight, challenge, or refuse to accept the ticket. Doing so could escalate a minor traffic violation into a more severe criminal action that could result in your arrest and your vehicle could be impounded.
Signing a ticket and accepting a copy does not mean that you agree that you committed the infraction indicated. Occasionally, drivers are ticketed inappropriately and the charges can be reduced or even dropped when the case is heard in traffic court.
By signing and accepting a copy of the ticket, you are indicating that you will take steps to correct the situation.
Once you have been ticketed, you are required to take some action to rectify the violation. The Oklahoma Municipal Courts website has more information on how to proceed if you believe you were ticketed in error and with to challenge the ticket in court.

Oklahoma has a mandatory points system to keep track of the driving records of licensed drivers in the state.
Insurance companies use your driving record as part of what determines your insurance rates and the Department of Public Safety uses it to determine the status of your license. Gain too many points and you could end up with a suspended or even revoked license.
Your driver's license starts off with no points, known as a "clean" driving record. Each time you are convicted of a traffic offense, you begin to accumulate points against your record. If you accumulate 10 points on your license over a period of 5 years, your license will be suspended.
You can find out more about the points system and how it affects your insurance rates and driving privileges on our DMV Points System page.Other Topics in This Section
