Traffic Control Signal Violations in Michigan
Under Michigan Vehicle Code Sections 257.608-616, it is a civil infraction to violate any form of traffic control signal. This includes traffic lights, school crossings, railroad crossings, stop signs and signs or directions in construction zones. These offenses are typically punishable by fine only, but in certain circumstances or combined with other violations a driver may face more serious criminal charges. For example, a driver failing to stop for a crossing guard in a school crossing zone may face misdemeanor charges for a violation.
Running a red light and all other traffic control signal violations are worth three points. If you pay the ticket or are otherwise convicted of these violations, three points will be added to your driving record.
