Traffic Lawyers for all Levels of Traffic Violations
In Michigan, there are three different classifications for traffic violations. These include:
- Civil Infractions
Both felony and misdemeanor offenses require a person to appear in court. Consequences of being found guilty include:
- Fines and Costs
- Possible Incarceration
- Points are Assessed
Civil infraction offenses are only punishable by a fine. However, failure to pay the fine will result in your driver’s license being suspended.
Depending on the number of points accrued on a person’s driver’s license, that person may be at risk of having his/her driver’s license suspended or revoked.
It is always important to be a safe and cautious driver, as doing so will increase a person’s ability to maintain a clean driving record which will in turn reduce insurance costs, saving you, the driver more money.
However, people make mistakes and find themselves in situations having to defend oneself against the traffic offense. When doing so, hiring an attorney with experience is of the utmost importance.
