Often, traffic-related offenses are considered a civil infraction or a misdemeanor, which carry a monetary fine. Civil infractions are also reported to the State of Michigan, where corresponding points are added to a divers’ record. Traffic-related offenses can also be misdemeanors, punishable with a fine and up to one year of incarceration.
Traffic-related offenses are usually addressed in the district court. While the State of Michigan is responsible for the points related to each traffic violation, each district court has some discretion in setting the fees that may be assessed. For example, Sterling Heights and Shelby Township District Courts follow the below fee schedule.
