Knowing the Facts About Traffic Violations
In the state of Michigan, there is a long list of different traffic violations. Every single day, thousands of drivers in the state alone are given tickets for breaking traffic law. The scope of various infractions ranges from minor civil violations to misdemeanor charges and felonies. Therefore, the repercussions are also sweeping; a driver may simply have to pay a fine, while another driver may face years of imprisonment.
Some examples of traffic violations that are recognized in the state of Michigan include (but are not limited to):
- Exceeding the speed limit
- Careless and reckless driving
- Drunk or impaired driving (DUI)
- Operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI)
- Hit and run
- Suspended or revoked license
- Driving without insurance
- Driving with an expired registration
- All moving violations
With lighter traffic violations, oftentimes an individual will pay the fine and go on with their lives without considering the many benefits of legal counsel. It is always recommended to reach out so you can protect yourself as well as possible, especially if the traffic violation is considered far more serious.
Anything that potentially mars your driving record is highly unwanted and detrimental for your future. However, an important factor to consider when faced with a traffic violation is that, even though you have been issued a ticket, you are not necessarily guilty. To increase your possibility of effectively contesting the ticket in court, contact a Flint criminal defense attorney in your first step to keeping your traffic record clean.
