Many people receive a traffic ticket and figure they will just accept the fine, not realizing that there can be significant consequences. Even just one citation affects your driver’s license and your wallet. The nature of traffic violations in Michigan often makes motorists think that options to fight the allegations are limited, but there are defenses. It is important to know what they are since some traffic violations can include misdemeanor or felony charges, far beyond what you expected for a ticket.

Moore, Attorney at Law, is skilled with these cases, having spent time as a prosecutor before moving into private practice to help defendants.

There may be ways to resolve your traffic citation without harsh penalties.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the different types of traffic violations in Michigan?
    There are laws on speed limits, parking, passing, and yielding right-of-way, as well as the requirement to follow all traffic signals. Any act that does not comply with these laws is a traffic violation.
  • Are all traffic violations crimes?
    Many citations are a civil infraction, which is below a misdemeanor. However, some violations are misdemeanors or felonies that carry harsh penalties. Examples include drunk driving or causing an accident that leads to serious bodily injury or death.
  • What are the penalties for breaking traffic laws?
    For violations that are civil infractions, a ticket could lead to a fine. Many offenses range from $100 to $200 for improper passing, failing to signal, or running a stop sign. Speeding fines increase with higher mph.
  • Are there effects for my driver’s license after a ticket?
    Every traffic violation has a number of points attached to it, and these points are added to your driving record after a citation. If you accumulate too many points, your driver’s license will be suspended.
  • How can I fight a traffic ticket?
    You can develop a defense strategy around the facts, disputing the allegations about breaking the law. It is also possible to mitigate the effects of a traffic violation by negotiating with the prosecution to minimize fines and points.
  • What are tips for choosing a Portage traffic tickets attorney?
    Make sure your lawyer focuses on criminal defense instead of having just a few clients in this practice area. Also, confirm that your attorney has extensive experience arguing cases in the courtroom, specifically traffic violations.
