If an officer ticketed or cited you for a traffic violation, you probably want to resolve the matter as quickly as possible. Maybe you are considering paying the ticket and making the problem go away sooner rather than later. That may seem like a good plan now, but doing so means the ticket could continue to hurt you in the future.
Traffic violations in Michigan can result in a ticket or a criminal charge. Depending on the circumstances, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. If you are convicted, all of these results will have implications on your life, some more serious than others, such as:
- Fines and court costs
- Points on your driver’s license record
- You could be ordered to complete a special program
