Driving a vehicle onto any controlled-access highway except at entrances and exits that are established is a violation of the Connecticut traffic laws. In some instances, it may be illegal for a driver to exit a roadway or highway from the shoulder of the road, or enter onto the highway from a shoulder. Doing one of these things may result in a violation called entering or leaving controlled access highway at other than designated entrance or exit. This law is outlined in Connecticut statute section 14-238. You can learn more about this motor vehicle violation here.
Consequences of Entering or Leaving Controlled Access Highway at Other Than Designated Entrance or Exit
Entering or leaving a controlled highway at other than designated entrance or exit may result in a motor vehicle ticket. This ticket could mean fines, a violation on one’s driving history, as well as two DMV points assessed to one’s driver’s license. Keep in mind that ten DMV points may result in a license suspension by the DMV. The more points added to your license, the more you have to lose by not fighting the ticket in court. Your best chance of avoiding points against your license is fighting the ticket instead of simply pleading to it.
Another consequence that you could potentially face is an increased rate for your car insurance. Individual car insurance companies change their premium rates differently. It is really at the discretion of the insurance company, so you may face this consequence or you may not. But again, if you can successfully fight the ticket, you can avoid increased car insurance rates.
