(a) For the purpose of identifying habitually reckless or negligent drivers and habitual or frequent violators of traffic laws, the commissioner shall adopt regulations establishing a uniform system for the suspension, revocation, limitation, or denial of a driver's license, privilege to drive, or privilege to obtain a license by assigning demerit points for convictions for violations of traffic laws that are required to be reported to the department under AS 28.15.191 and AS 28.37.130 .

(b) The regulations adopted under (a) of this section shall include a designated level of point accumulation which identifies drivers who are habitually reckless or negligent or who are habitual or frequent violators of traffic laws, so as to show a disrespect for traffic laws and a disregard for the safety of other persons.  In formulating the point system authorized by this section, the commissioner shall, in the interest of interstate uniformity, provide for suspension, revocation or denial of a driver's license, privilege to drive, or privilege to obtain a license for an accumulation of 12 or more points as a result of offenses committed during any consecutive 12-month period or 18 or more points as a result of offenses committed during any 24-month period.

(c) The regulations adopted under (a) of this section shall include a two-point addition to a licensee's assessed total if the licensee, while in a designated traffic safety corridor, overtakes and passes another vehicle in a zone designated by a safety control device that prohibits passing.
