Traffic Ticket Lawyer in Oakland County
Arrested? You don't have to plead guilty!
The number of traffic offenses drivers can be guilty of committing almost
seems too many to count. Many of these offenses appear inconsequential
enough, but police officers are always watching and won't hesitate
to attach points to your driver's license. Get enough points and your
ability to drive will eventually suffer. Why take a chance?
Retain our Oakland County traffic offense attorney for hard-hitting representation
that won't quit until your case is resolved the right way.
How do points impact your driving record over time?
When a police officer pulls you over and writes you a ticket, you'll
be faced with a fine based on the severity of your traffic offense. Even
more serious, however, are the points your license could incur as a result.
The amount of points you receive depends on the severity of your offense.
Points for some of the most common offenses include:
Six points: Manslaughter, operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol, reckless
driving, eluding a police officer, and refusing to take a chemical test
Four points: Drag racing, operating while visibly impaired, 16 MPH or move over the
legal speed limit, and failing to yield to emergency vehicles
Three points: Careless driving, 11-15 MPH over the speed limit, failing to stop at railroad
crossings, and failing to stop for a school bus
Two points: Going 10 MPH or less over the speed limit, open alcohol container in vehicle,
and any other moving violations of traffic laws
All points will stay on your record for a period of two years from the
date you are convicted. If you receive four points within two years, you'll
receive an advisory letter from the Secretary of State. Eight points within
two years means you'll get a warning letter. At 12 points, you must
attend a driver assessment reexamination. This reexamination is thorough
and can result in a suspended, restricted, or revoked license.
