Michigan Traffic Ticket Attorney
Misdemeanor Traffic Violations
Traffic violations are categorized as civil infractions, misdemeanors, and felonies. A civil infraction is the least serious, as the only criminal penalty imposed is a fine. A misdemeanor conviction may result in a fine and/or a county jail sentence of up to 12 months, and a felony is typically a violation that may be penalized by a minimum of 1 year in state prison and a fine. All of these classes of violations may also result in the assessment of points on your driving record. Depending upon the particular offense, the specific fines, terms of imprisonment, driver's license suspension and other penalties that a driver may face will vary.
