Traffic Violations

Driving in the Motor City is quite literally a way of life, and it is important to understand the many ways in which your driving privileges may be compromised, restricted, suspended or revoked.

Traffic Violations

  • SPEEDING – Speeding tickets, and resulting penalties, often depend on the speed you were traveling and the county in which you were pulled over. In any case, you should expect fines, potentially points, and an increase in insurance rates.
  • DRIVING WITH SUSPENDED/REVOKED LICENSE – Driving with a suspended or revoked license violate the same law in Michigan. The consequences reach beyond just your ability to drive, and it is important to contact Justin Zayid to ensure your rights (and driving record) is protected.
  • RECKLESS DRIVING – A subjective charge that is reliant upon police observation. If you are found to be intentionally driving in a dangerous or risky manner, you may be subjected to a misdemeanor charge and serious consequences. Learn more about the law and how ZAYID LAW defends against these charges.
  • HIT AND RUN – Michigan law requires drivers who are involved in accidents to “stop and remain” at the scene. Failure to remain at the scene of the accident could result in hit and run charges, which have serious consequences.
  • FLEEING & ELUDING POLICEIf you are given a lawful command by a police officer and willfully fail to obey, you can be charged for fleeing and eluding. If you commit a traffic violation and are instructed to pull over and do not, serious penalties may follow.

Driver’s License Points for Traffic Violations

Michigan attributes “points” for various traffic violations, and if you reach 12 points, your driver’s license may be suspended or revoked, along with several fines and conditions for reinstatement. It is important to understand how points are attributed, how to fight the charges that come with points, and how to remove points from your record. Contact Justin Zayid to learn more about how to avoid points on your driver’s license.
