  1. point system

    A point system is a method or structure of quantification, evaluation, or grading, where points or scores are allocated based on certain criteria or performance. This system can be used in various contexts such as education (graded assessments), sports (points for goal, performance), rewards or loyalty programs (points for purchases, activities), games, or even traffic violations (points for violations), among others. The accumulation or deduction of these points usually leads to certain consequences or rewards.


  1. Point system

    A demerit point system is one in which a driver's licensing authority, police force, or other organization issues cumulative demerits, or points to drivers on conviction for road traffic offenses. Points may either be added or subtracted, depending on the particular system in use. A major offense may lead to more than the maximum allowed points being issued. Points are typically applied after driving offenses are committed, and cancelled a defined time, typically a few years, afterwards, or after other conditions are met; if the total exceeds a specified limit the offender may be disqualified from driving for a time, or the driving license may be revoked. Fines and other penalties may be applied additionally, either for an offense or after a certain number of points have been accumulated. The primary purpose of such point systems is to identify, deter, and penalize repeat offenders of traffic laws, while streamlining the legal process. Germany introduced a demerit point system, in 1974, and one was introduced in NY, USA at about that time.
