Well I said it need to be tweak some I would say the points would go away in
a year from the date they was put there but your record would be there for
ever and the insurance companies would only be able to do as it does now go
back three years. But they could not rate your insurance according to your
credit score. What does your credit score has to do with how safe you drive.
What Posted would be a starting point and it would need to be tweaked . You
have to start some where.

So if the powers that be declare an accident does that mean no points off
the driver's license and bad marks from the insurance company?
