An at fault is declared when a driver clearly initiated contact that leads to a caution [ex: catching the apron and spinning in front of another car, bouncing off of the wall on turn exit and into another car, not holding a proper line and creating contact with another car, ect.]
- 1st at fault accident in a race will not be penalized points.
- 2nd at fault in a race is a 2 point penalty.
- 3rd at fault in a race is a 5 point penalty and suspended for the next race.
- Accumulating 5 at faults during the season is a 3 point penalty, no matter how many races it takes to accumulate them.
- Accumulating 8 at faults during the season is a 1 race suspension.
- A singular lag spike will not be declared an at fault accident, however that driver must start in the back of the field on the ensuing restart. Multiple lag spikes from a driver will result in that driver being asked to leave the race if it is deemed unsafe to drive around that car.
- Anything deemed a racing deal between 2 drivers will not count as a half at fault in the tally system.
- After 2 consecutive races that a driver completes without being charged with an at-fault, lag or racing deal, that driver will have an at-fault taken away from their season total in regards to the race suspension, but not against the points penalty tally. If a driver is already at 0, they will stay there and can not accrue negative at-fault amounts.
- There will be either a points penalty or time penalty assessed to a driver who bumps another driver into pit road and causes them to receive a speeding penalty (this also takes into account contact on the track that leads to a driver being sent onto pit road as well). The type of penalty will be based on factors of how much it negatively effected the victim (was there a caution that allowed them to catch up? Did the race stay green and they did not get a chance to recover? just for examples)
Protesting Another Driver:
- If you feel that a driver has purposelessly or recklessly generated contact to make a pass, you may submit video evidence to Hootius in PSN chat for review. If it is deemed that the driver has clearly broken the PRL Rules of Driving Conduct, a point penalty may be awarded at the discretion of the leadership.
- If the violation happens on the last lap, a time penalty may be given in place of a points penalty at the leadership's discretion.
- It is up to the drivers to protest any actions on the track that does not lead to a caution. The leadership will not go looking through videos willingly to find situations.
