Canton Traffic Tickets
You’re driving a little too fast down Ford Road in Canton to buy some new furniture at IKEA on Sunday afternoon. All of a sudden, you see the flashing red and blue lights of a Canton police car pulling you over. Uh oh! Speeding ticket time.
The speeding ticket might come with points on your record. Is there anything you can do to take care of it?
Give us a call at (734) 883-9584 and we can fight the ticket for you. You don’t need to go to Court – we can go on your behalf.
We can speak with the prosecutor with the goal of getting a reduction to save points and a nasty looking infraction on your record.
Or, where the ticket was written in error, we can hold the formal hearing on the ticket. A formal hearing is like a trial for a traffic ticket. The police officer and any witnesses may testify. You can testify in your own defense if you choose. The prosecution must prove by what’s called a preponderance of the evidence that the civil infraction was committed. The judge makes the final call, there is no jury.
Traffic tickets in Canton are handled in the 35th District Court.
Here is a list of fines and costs for civil infraction tickets in the Court.
