A point system is a method many states use to keep track of how many traffic infractions a driver has committed. The state will assign points for certain offenses, such as speeding or passing a stopped school bus. If a driver accumulates too many points, he or she could lose driving privileges.
Hawaii used to have a point system, but lawmakers got rid of it a few years ago. Having no point system does not, however, give drivers in Hawaii free rein to commit as many traffic infractions as they want. Hawaii's Department of Licensing uses a different demerit system, instead.
