Defending Against Traffic Violations Of All Kinds

If you habitually receive tickets for traffic infractions and simply pay the fines, your driving privileges may be in jeopardy. Under the Michigan Vehicle Code, points are placed on your driving record for each traffic conviction (paying the fines constitutes a conviction). Accumulation of too many points will result in license suspension. Therefore, whether you have been ticketed for speeding or for road rage, it may be in your interests to contest the ticket.

Don't Just Pay Your Speeding Tickets

If you have received a speeding ticket or another traffic ticket, discuss the violation with an experienced defense attorney at Vander Horst Law Office, P.C. We offer straightforward advice about your case.

There are defenses to traffic violations. We thoroughly review the traffic ticket to determine if there are technical deficiencies. Errors in the ticket may cause it to be invalid — resulting in a dropped citation. In addition, we analyze the case for other mistakes or defects, such as defects in the radar gun. In some cases, we may be able to negotiate a reduced violation — such as reducing a speeding ticket for speeding over 16 mph or more over the speed limit (4 points) to a speeding ticket for speeding only 11 to15 mph over the speed limit (3 points).

Points remain on your driving record for two years. Accumulation of 12 points will result in automatic license suspension. In addition, you will likely face increased insurance rates unless the tickets are successfully contested.
