Coon Rapids, MN asked in Traffic Tickets for Minnesota

Q: License suspension from speeding tickets?

Hello! I’m afraid I am facing license suspension, but after further research I’m a little confused. My first ticket was 1/11/2022, second was 11/14/2022, third was 2/6/2023 and my fourth ticket being 3/1/2024. I’ve THOUGHT after 4 tickets your license would automatically be suspended for 30 days. I also received a letter in the mail warning me about suspension a couple months ago.

First conviction: 9/27/2020 - ASSMBL/THREAT PEACE

Second: 1/11/2022 - 79 in a 65

Third: 11/14/2022 - 92 in a 60 (horrible I know)

Fourth: 2/6/2023 - 84 in a 70

Fifth: 3/1/2024 - 80 in a 60

A: The answer is in Minnesota Rules 7409.2200 HABITUAL VIOLATORS, available online. (For those with a Minnesota Driver's License, at least.) Four petty misd. traffic offenses within a 12-month period; or five traffic within a 24-month period will get a DL suspension. The rule is more complex than that, however, so so it's a good idea to read it.
