Oakland County Traffic Court Misdemeanors

While individuals can be arrested for traffic misdemeanors, it’s common to receive a misdemeanor ticket instead. The ticket will have instructions on it, but the process can still be confusing.

If you are issued a ticket, you will most likely have to appear in court for arraignment. If you plead not guilty, your case may go on to a pretrial conference and eventually a trial. Most traffic tickets are minor offenses and can be resolved before trial.

What are the Penalties for Traffic Violations?

Penalties for a traffic misdemeanor include a fine and court costs, and the Secretary of State’s Office may add points to your driving record. The points will be removed from your record after two years. If you do not pay the fines or otherwise take care of traffic tickets, your license could be suspended. Don't wait, contact our criminal defense attorney today, who is here to defend you and your rights.
