Can You Be Ticketed For Not Wearing Your Corrective Lenses While Driving?

Did you know that if you have a corrective lens restriction on your driver's license you will be ticketed if you are pulled over and are not wearing your glasses or contacts? In fact, in some states, you might even face time in jail.

If you aren't sure if you have a restriction on your license, locate the section on your license that says restrictions. If it says "none" you are not required to wear your corrective lenses while driving. If it says "vision" under restrictions, you will be ticketed if you are pulled over and are not wearing your corrective lenses. Even if you only need your glasses at night, the restriction applies 24 hours a day and you will be ticketed or fined for not complying if pulled over during the daytime hours.

If you don't have a restriction but you wear glasses or contact lenses to correct your distance or night vision, it is advised that you always wear your corrective lenses while driving.

If you have recently had corrective vision surgery, remember to go to your local DMV to have the restriction lifted because as long as it is on your license you are required to wear your corrective lenses.

Most fines and tickets can be handled personally but if you are in an accident where there is a debate about who is at fault, you might want to consult an attorney. Contact our office for a FREE consultation. We can help.
