Traffic Law

Under Michigan law, some traffic violations are civil infractions while others are misdemeanors or felonies. Depending on the violation and how it is resolved, you may be fined, referred to a special program or, in the most serious situations, sent to jail. In most cases, if you do not take care of a traffic ticket, your driver's license will be suspended.

Each time you are convicted of a traffic violation, you will have to pay certain court fines and costs. In addition, points may be posted to your driver record. Under Michigan's point system, each traffic violation has a point value, which is set by law in the Michigan Vehicle Code. Points are placed on your driver record only after you have been convicted or found guilty of or responsible for a civil infraction. Points placed on your driver record remain for two years from the date of conviction.

Insurance companies also have access to this information and may use it as a basis to raise insurance premiums. If you accumulate twelve points within a two-year period, your driving privileges can be suspended.

If your driver's license has been suspended or revoked, you have a past-due traffic fine, or you wish to dispute a ticket, contact Somchit Mounsamrouath-Hart at (248) 231-1548 to explain the process of reinstating or retaining your driving privileges or reducing the amount of points placed on your driving record.
