What is a traffic case?
If you violate the Michigan Motor Vehicle Code, and are issued a ticket by a police officer, you may be subject to fines and points on your driving record if it is a civil infraction. If your ticket is for a misdemeanor traffic violation, the penalty may also include a jail sentence. Both civil infractions and misdemeanor tickets may be disputed in a court hearing or trial.
