Does inattentive driving go on your driving record?

I have no idea, but it should. If you had to pick one thing that you should be attentive to while doing, driving should be the answer every single time. People, put the phones down, change the CDs before you start driving, and whatever is in the passenger floorboard can stay there until you stop. The world will not end! Oh I forgot the makeup! Please apply all makeup before leaving the house!

It does some of the time, and headstones is where it leads too all to often.

Inattentive driving tickets are given because cities are limited to how much money they can make from fines. (Tyronza/Gilmore) A cop can write a million inattentive driving tickets and it doesn't go on your record or count toward the citys fine limit. It's basically a scam so they can write more tickets.

Cities also receive 100% of the revenue from these tickets. Mine was for speeding; however, it was written under a city ordinance so that the city can get the revenue.

These tickets are the officers way of being nice in a mean way. They are a city ordinance ticket, where they do not go on your driving record none what so ever. All you are doing is merely paying a city fine. They are all the same price.

If you were speeding, ran a red light or stop city, whatever it may be. It was his way of being nice but still performing his duty and writing a citation.

I have received two of these in my lifetime. One recently for passing a school bus when the bus was stopped and I didn't see it until I passed it. The officer could have given me a greater ticket, but because I was nice he found it to be less severe to write me an inattentive driving ticket. That way it wouldn't go on my driving record but I would still have to pay a fine.

The other was when I was 16 and I was speeding. Here again, I had a clean driving record and it was my first time to be pulled over.

In my opinion, if you were given one of these citations; don't complain, just go pay the fine. It should only be about $125 or so. Which is far less than what your other ticket could have been.

If I remember correctly my fine for the same offense was $155. The city does it so they can write as many tickets they want. It's about $10 higher than a speeding ticket but it doesn't go on your record. I got my ticket for not seeing a "Reduced Speed Ahead" sign. I don't think these tickets should be legal. Tyronza and Gilmore townships make a killing from these tickets.

In Jonesboro it's called Hazardous Driving. About 75.00 and doesn't go on your record. I've had a couple of those.
