Erasing Driving Points On License

LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- A new Michigan law will allow certain drivers to erase points from their record if they're willing to take a class.
Someone ticketed for speeding or other offenses would still pay fines. But completing a driver-improvement course would eliminate the points and possibly keep insurance rates from rising.
The Grand Rapids Press says Michigan drivers with two points or less on their record would qualify with a letter from the secretary of state. The course would be taken online or in a classroom.
Sen. John Pappageorge, a Republican from Troy, sponsored the law. He says drivers will never improve if they're simply hit with fines.
Commercial drivers are not covered by the law.
