State of Michigan Citations and Points

A three-point play in basketball is a good thing, but those same three points on your driver license puts you 25% of the way toward having to face a possible driver assessment reexamination test and suspension.

Traffic violations in Michigan are generally scored on a points system. Like demerits at school, the worse the infraction, the more points you pick up.

When you're convicted of a traffic violation, you'll be responsible for paying fines and, in some cases, court fees. Depending on the infraction, you also may have anywhere from one to six points posted to your driving record.

And those points are about as tough to shake as your shadow on a sunny day. The bottom line? If you get 'em, you've got 'em―for two years from the date of your conviction
