Defending Against Traffic Violations Of All Varieties
If you frequently receive tickets for traffic infractions and just pay the fines, your driving privileges may be in jeopardy. Under the Michigan Vehicle Code, points are placed on your driving record for each traffic conviction and paying the fines constitutes a conviction. If you accumulate too many points, it will result in license suspension. Therefore, whether you have been ticketed for speeding or for road rage, it may be in your best interest to contest the ticket.
Don’t Just Pay Your Speeding Tickets
There are defenses to traffic violations. We thoroughly review the traffic ticket to determine if there are technical deficiencies. Errors in the ticket may cause it to be invalid — resulting in a dropped citation. In addition, we analyze the case for other mistakes or defects, such as defects in the radar gun. In some cases, we may be able to negotiate a reduced violation such as reducing a speeding ticket for speeding over 16 mph or more over the speed limit, which accumulates four points, to a speeding ticket for speeding only 11 to 15 mph over the speed limit, which is three points.
Points remain on your driving record for two years. Accumulation of 12 points will result in automatic license suspension. In addition, you will likely face increased insurance rates unless the tickets are successfully contested.
Our attorneys are experienced in contesting various types of traffic violations, such as:
- Drinking and driving DUI/OWI
- Reckless driving
- Failure to stop for a school bus
- Failure to abide by traffic signals
- CDL traffic violations
- Other traffic violations
