Driver’s License Suspended? Call Now for Help!
In Michigan, offenses related to the operation of a motor vehicle, depending upon the specific violation, can be classified as felonies, misdemeanors or civil infractions. Felonies and misdemeanors are discussed more completely in their own section of this website. On the other hand, civil infractions are violations of local or state laws that are not punishable by imprisonment. The typical punishment for civil infractions can include fines, points on your driver’s license and/or suspension of your driving privileges. Some of the most common traffic offenses are as follows:
- Drunk driving
- Driving while license suspended
- Inoperative equipment
- Obstructed view
- Failure to stop after an accident
- Disobeying traffic signal
- No proof of insurance
- No registration
- No operator’s license on person
Typically, people are more concerned about the ramifications on their license and the points than they are about the fines associated with the particular violation. If you or a loved one has a court date stemming from a traffic violation or you wish to fight your ticket, retain an attorney immediately. Don’t simply pay the fines and take the points. Attorneys who are familiar with Michigan traffic laws are often times able work out deals for their clients that can save them time and money.
