Asked in Traffic Tickets for Indiana

Q: Is 9-18.1-11-2(b)(2) Driving with expired plates A citation that will give points? If yes is there a lower citation?

By lower citation I am referring to something that I could ask the prosecutor to amend it to that would not carry points. I did renew my registration while the ticket was being issued. I just completely was unaware that it had expired. My email filter apparently took out the emails from the state as junk mail.

A: Expired plates should not add any points to your record since it is not a moving violation. If you have already renewed your plates; I suggest contacting the prosecutor's office and provide them proof. The prosecutor may be willing to dismiss the case for you being in compliance.
