Negligent Operator Treatment System (“NOTS”)
California Vehicle Code 12810.5a defines a negligent operator as any Class C (passenger car) licensed driver “whose driving record shows a violation point count of four or more points in twelve months, six or more points in twenty-four months, or eight or more points in thirty-six months.”
The Negligent Operator Treatment System (NOTS) is based on negligent operator points and consists of a computer- generated series of warning letters and progressive sanctions against the driving privilege. NOTS affects California drivers eighteen years of age and older. Younger “provisional” drivers are also included in the NOTS program if they violate provisional probation or suspension.
If a timely request is made for a hearing, stays (stopping the proposed suspension) can often be obtained. Therefore it is best to contact Ms. McQueen as quickly as possible after the driver receives the Negligent Operator notification from the DMV.
