Negligent Operator Treatment (NOT) in California Act.


Existing law prescribes various speed limits for the operation of vehicles, and generally prohibits a person from driving a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed that endangers the safety of persons or property. Existing law requires that specified convictions, violations, and traffic-related incidents count as points against a driver's record for purposes of suspension or revocation of the privilege to drive, and generally provides that traffic convictions involving the safe operation of a motor vehicle result in one violation point. This bill, the Negligent Operator Treatment (NOT) in California Act, would specify that a conviction of driving a vehicle at a speed that exceeds the posted speed limit by 26 miles per hour or more results in 2 violation points.
