Consequences of a Traffic Ticket

Receiving a traffic ticket in Michigan is a serious matter with real consequences. In addition to the Court fine, you could be subject to points being assessed on your driving record and even a suspension of your driving privileges. In Michigan, each time you are convicted of a traffic violation 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 there for two years from the date of conviction. What makes it worse is that the conviction typically stays on your driving record for seven years. That is why it is so critical to hire a lawyer immediately when you receive a traffic ticket.
