A moving violation is a violation that involves some type of error while you are operating your vehicle. A non-moving violation is an error that does not involve how you operated your vehicle.
Moving violations are considered more serious. Violations that occur while you are operating your car can cause an accident. Speeding, failing to maintain a single lane, and running a stop sign are common examples of moving violations. These types of violations place points on your license and carry expensive fines.
Non-moving violations are considered less serious and deal with issues of safety and convenience. Common examples of non-moving violations are parking tickets, failing to change the address on your license, and window tint violations. These violations still have fines, but they do not place points on your license.
