Of all driving violations, a conviction for drunk driving charges is potentially the most serious. In Michigan, the charges include OWI (Operating While Intoxicated), OWPD (Operating with the Presence of Drugs), or OWVI (Operating While Visibly Impaired). Most first and second offenses are misdemeanors, but the state has set tough minimum sentences. Many people choose to have an attorney represent them on misdemeanor DUI charges in hopes of reducing fines and license suspension time. Having representation at a hearing on refusal to take a PBT test on the road or the DataMaster breath test at the police station can add fines and an additional license suspension.

Felony DUI driving violations are especially serious because felony convictions carry mandatory county jail time and potential prison time. Get a skilled attorney to evaluate the strategies to defend you or someone you love against these grave charges. Call now. Examples include:

  • A third DUI offense (within a lifetime)
  • A DUI that caused an accident in which someone else was seriously injured or killed
  • Causing an accident with serious injury or death while driving on a license that had been suspended or revoked

Other Driving Violations

The word “other” does not mean less serious. Whether you face civil hearings or a criminal case, call for clear advice about what can be done. Some examples include operating a motor vehicle:

  • Without insurance
  • Without registration
  • With expired license plates
  • With a driver’s license infraction

Call Now If You:

  1. Have received a ticket or have been arrested for a driving offense- DUI, DWLS, reckless, etc.
  2. Have been given a ticket for a moving violation- speeding, running a red light, accident, etc.
  3. Have received a ticket after being in an accident.
  4. Have received a ticket for a PBT refusal or have refused the Data Master/Breathalyzer test.

Moving Driving Violations

The majority of these offenses are civil infractions.

You can pay the fine and receive the points, or you can hire Kathryn Simmons to negotiate a reduction for lesser points or fight the ticket. The officer who wrote the ticket may be persuaded to accept a plea to a lesser charge. The judge may be open to negotiation by a skilled lawyer. If the officer does not show up for court, the charges could be dropped. Your attorney will know what to do. Some examples:

  • Running a red light/amber light
  • Speeding
  • Careless driving
  • Illegal passing
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Accident
  • There are many others; call me to discuss the specifics of your case

Driving Violations Means Points, and That Means Money

It is wise to challenge both civil infraction and misdemeanor traffic tickets because they carry fines, points, and insurance premium increases. But even more costly may be the impact of points on your record- insurance companies raise rates on drivers who accumulate points on their record

*$250 for civil infraction without hearing held; $400 if hearing held
