Sec. 10. (a) The bureau shall periodically update the point value table, as needed, with the assistance of the point study committee. Points assessed in subsection (f), Table 1 shall be for:
(1) in-state violations; or
(2) out-of-state violations reported to the bureau from any state for which an equivalent violation exists in Indiana.

(2) Out-of-state violations shall be recorded based upon the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators Code Dictionary (ACD) Code provided by the state reporting the violation.
(3) Leaving the scene of an accident under IC 9-26-1 shall be treated as an accident in excess of one thousand dollars ($1,000) requiring a mandatory suspension unless the accident is specifically designated on the abstract of court record or court order as less than one thousand dollars ($1,000).
(4) Property damage or personal injury shall not be presumed to have occurred when assessing points for reckless driving violations unless such property damage or personal injury is specifically indicated in the court order or on the abstract of court record by the court.

(c) Any violation that is subject to statutory change shall retain the same point designation until the regulations are amended unless such violation is entirely repealed by the statutory change whereby no points shall be assessed for that violation.

(d) The point value assigned to a violation shall be determined by the point value table in effect on the date the violation was committed.

(e) All violations that are removed from the point value table shall retain their assigned point value for violations committed prior to the removal of the violation from the table.
