Approximately 35,000,000 people across the country will receive traffic tickets this year, mostly for speeding. As many as 95% of these tickets are not contested. Traffic tickets are big business for local governments throughout the United States. Major cities generate millions of dollars a year from traffic ticket fines. Smaller rural towns can generate most of their operating budgets from the money they earn through traffic tickets.
Most people take the path of least resistance and just pay their fines, thinking it is not worth the trouble to fight their tickets. Before you just pay up, consider that your traffic ticket could cost you a lot more that just the fine you pay. Traffic convictions and guilty pleas can result in increases in your insurance premiums of up to 50% or more for three to five years. The points charged against your driver’s licence can lead to your license being suspended. Convictions or guilty pleas on Michigan traffic tickets are reported back to your home state if your state is a member of the Driver’s License Compact (which includes 45 states and the District of Columbia). In addition, may employers look unfavorably on employees or job candidates with poor driving records, especially if your license is suspended and you can’t get to work. If you hold a commercial driver’s license. your traffic ticket could cost you your entire livelihood.
