What does this do to my driving record?

If your case is ultimately dismissed, nothing happens to your driving record.  However, if you are found responsible (either by pleading responsible, or being found responsible after a hearing, or by failing to appear) the court will generally enter a customary fine for the offense.

Any and all “points” assessed against your license are strictly and only the result of MVD action; The court does not ever order any points against your license.  Nor can the court order MVD to not assess points.   MVD operates under their own policies.   In addition, it is possible that MVD will assess additional penalties, including Defensive Driving School, Traffic Survival School, Suspend the license, etc.   Contact MVD for information concerning your driving record and any possible consequences.
