Your question makes (2) assumptions. (1) that you were cited and (2) the violation has points. Not all vehicle code violations have points associated with them. Points are only assigned by the state to your driving record (license) upon conviction. When/if your insurance company reviews your driving record and sees the accident (not the points) and that you are listed as unit or vehicle 1 (at fault) then they may charge a surcharge
