Every time you get a quote from auto insurance, I ask what my points are and what's on my record. So far I'm at zero points and clean record. I have had tickets in the past, but all gone now. Just need to make my credit look so good.

Yup all the time. Mostly because im in court fighting a parking ticket of something like that every few months. Here in Hawaii we have an online system called Ecourtkokua. It displays all public information civil/traffic/criminal per individual and vehicle.

Keep an eye on it and don't forget to FIGHT THE POWER!

just a fyi. the points that the courts take into account, and the points that insurance takes into account are different. the court points don't "disappear" EVER! I went to court in 2011 for speeding and they brought up tickets I got in high school in 2001.

I suppose that there could be a mistake, but I just generally drive legally to avoid any issues. Don't get me wrong, I know people who get all worked up about their driving, especially since we have a ton of traffic cameras around here, but I won't pretend to understand it. For example, I offered to drive to our softball game one day last summer when a friend picked me up, since he said he was stressed out since he needed to make some phone calls but was the driver (I offered to drive so he could talk, he accepted). He kept telling me to jam on the brakes like he does in speed camera areas and I was, like, "calm the f down...I'm not speeding, I don't need to do a brake check!" When we got where we were going, smoothly and calmly, he immediately was all "if a camera ticket comes back, you're paying it!" When he got no tickets from my driving, he was all "how did you do it?" "I drove approximately the speed limit, stopped at red lights and stop signs, and just took traffic as it came," I said. Turns out he's gotten far fewer tickets since he emulated my calm and lawful driving. Other drivers get aggressive with me from time to time over my behavior, but I take it in stride (their problem, not mine, and I have some STORIES about how people who cut me off got to the same place I was going at the same time), keep my defenses up, and revel in the fact that I've had exactly *one* moving violation in the last 14 years (which I could have contested due to an obscured sign (the cop even said I should contest it), but decided not to because it was a cheap ticket and no points).
