Detroit Traffic Ticket Lawyers

Every client matters.

Experienced representation for drivers charged with speeding and other traffic offenses

You need your car to function, to work, and to enjoy your life. Traffic violations are not like parking tickets. You could lose your driving privileges if you have too many points on your driving record. The cost of a traffic ticket including the fines, insurance premiums, and court costs can be very expensive. The points generally stay on your record for two years which means if you were lucky enough to keep your license this time, the next offense can cause a suspension or a revocation of your license.

Receiving a traffic ticket doesn’t need to increase your insurance premiums or take your time up in court. At ElimiTix, our traffic and speeding ticket attorneys will go to court for you and fight to have your ticket reduced to a no-point violation—saving you time and money all at an affordable price. Ticket reductions can also lower the number of points. We begin each case by arguing that you shouldn’t have been charged with a traffic ticket in the first place. When the police have a strong case, we often can convince the officer to reduce the ticket to a less serious offense.

With internet access, you can hire us right from your mobile phone or call us at (844) 607-0332. Our skilled Detroit traffic ticket lawyers serve Detroit, MI and the surrounding areas.

Why should I hire a traffic defense lawyer instead of paying the ticket?

Michigan uses a point system to track your driving record. If you acquire 12 or more points, your license could be suspended or revoked. Generally, traffic violations are assigned a score of 2, 3, 4, or 6 points. If you have 4 points, you’ll receive a warning letter. If you have 8 points, you’ll receive another warning letter. Yearly assessments may be applied if you have 7 or more points. The points for each violation stay on your record for 2 years.

A conviction of a traffic offense means more than just points. Each violation carries fines and court costs. The fines increase with the severity of the offense. Misdemeanor and felony traffic offenses can result in imprisonment.

For many drivers, the biggest expense is that their insurance premiums will dramatically increase because insurance companies worry that drivers who have points on their driving record are not safe drivers – they’re risky. The increased rates will normally continue as long as you have points on your record. Other factors that can affect your premium are whether you were involved in an accident, whether anyone was injured, whether there was damage to any of the vehicles, and your prior relationship with the insurance company,

The Michigan point system assigns points (2, 3, 4, or 6) depending on the severity of the offense. Some of the many types of traffic tickets in Detroit that will result in points include:

  • Two points. Traffic tickets in Detroit that will result in two points include driving with an open alcohol container, drivers under 21 who refuse a preliminary breath test, and all moving traffic violations that don’t have higher point totals.
  • Three points. Traffic tickets in Detroit that will result in three points include speeding at 11-15 mph over the speed limit; failing to stop at railroad crossings, traffic signs, traffic signs, a school bus, or before a crossing guard; driving carelessly; and passing improperly.
  • Four points. Traffic tickets in Detroit that will result in four points include any positive blood alcohol test result if a driver is under 21, speeding at 16 mph or more over the speed limit, failing to yield or exercise caution for emergency vehicles, drag racing, and driving while visibly impaired.
  • Six points. Traffic tickets in Detroit that will result in six points include felonies that involve using a motor vehicle, operating while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, refusing a chemical test, failing to give the necessary ID after an accident, reckless driving, a BAC of .08 or more, and fleeing or eluding a police officer.

As mentioned, if you have 12 or more points, your license will be suspended.

How do you fight for traffic ticket defendants?

At ElimiTix, our Detroit traffic ticket team fights for you in numerous ways depending on the charge, what happened, the officer involved, and other factors.

We work to have the charges dismissed by showing that the officer/government cannot prove its case by a reasonable doubt. We challenge the validity of any chemical tests or radar equipment. We question the police about what he/she really saw. Other arguments include challenges to violations of your Constitutional rights, showing that you weren’t the driver, and showing that the officer has his/her facts wrong.

Another common strategy that we’ve had much success using is to seek to reduce the severity of the traffic ticket so that less or even no points are assigned. Officers will often consider reducing the charges if an argument can made that the charges might be dismissed if the officer proceeds. They may also consider lesser chargers for other reasons.

If you meet the eligibility requirements, you should be able to take a Basic Driver Improvement Course (BDIC). On completion of the course, the traffic ticket is placed on your driving record – but not the points.  The ticket information is not disclosed to the insurance companies.

Eligibility for a BDIC requires that you have a valid non-commercial Michigan driver’s license. The ticket can’t involve a criminal offense (a misdemeanor or a felony). Your driving record (without the new ticket) must have at most two points. The current ticket is only for offenses that would assess no more than three points.

There is a fee for the course which takes about four hours to complete (online or in a classroom).

We’ll explain the eligibility and time limit requirements.

Is hiring a Detroit traffic ticket lawyer worth the expense?

If you don’t hire a lawyer, you will either need to plead guilty or risk a hearing on your own. Most defendants are not successful when trying a traffic ticket case on their own. The consequences of a conviction for a traffic ticket are, at a minimum, financial. In addition to a fine, you will likely face increased insurance rates for several years.

A traffic ticket could also result in a suspension or revocation of your license. This means you will need to use public transportation, rely on friends and family, take taxis or rideshare trips, or walk to get to where you need to go. A suspension or revocation means spending a lot more money and a lot more time to get to where you want to go. If the ticket involves a criminal offense, you could be imprisoned.

An attorney helps save you money. Just a reduction in the points that are assessed can be worth the cost of hiring a lawyer because the legal fees are usually less than the fines and insurance increases. If you’re facing a suspension or a revocation of your Michigan driver’s license, then hiring a lawyer is definitely the smart choice.

How else do Detroit traffic ticket lawyers help drivers charged with traffic violations?

We’ll explain the time limit you have to request a hearing, what happens at the hearing, whether you need to appear at the hearing, what happens if the ticket offense is reduced, and whether the hearing is online or offline.

We have experience speaking with police officers and negotiating with police officers and prosecutors. This experience includes knowing when to assert your defenses and when and how to make personal arguments about the events that led to the ticket and your need to drive.

CLIENTS TESTIMONIALS

Marc Chambers

I received a ticket for disobeying a traffic signal (red light) in February 2020. Elimitix was suggested by a friend. It turned out to be a great idea. Farah and her team gave me confidence in a positive outcome from the start. Although, I was unable to logon to the website to track my ticket, the matter was handled without my participation. Due to covid circumstances, my notice to appear was scheduled and subsequently cancelled twice (in March and again in May). In late July, a proceeding was held that I did not have to attend. The Elimitix team was able to win a dismissal for me. The price was very reasonable and the results could not be beat. Thanks so much Farah. I would choose your firm and recommend your firm to anyone with a ticket issue.

Steven Mamat you’re the man!! Elimitix made solving my ticket as easy as possible I can’t recommend them enough, I had a ticket for 25 over and Steven had it reduced to “impeding traffic” which means no points only a small fine and traffic school. Steven really listened to what i wanted the outcome to be and did his best (and exceeded) to beat my expectations. Thank you!!!!!

Mr Steve was very helpful and professional in taking care of the traffic ticket I received. I scanned and sent him my ticket and he very promptly assured me that he would take care of it. I was concerned that I would have a number of points since my driving license had expired. However Steve took care of everything when I appeared at court. He was with me all the way to the end of my hearing and all my issues were resolved to my satisfaction. I would recommend Steve to anybody who is looking for a good lawyer to take care of their legal issues. I had a very clean traffic record and thanks to Mr steve it is same as before
