Traffic Division

Civil Infraction traffic tickets are processed by the Traffic Division of the District Court. Respondents may:

​Respondents may request an Informal Hearing with the Magistrate, where no attorneys are allowed, or a Formal Hearing before the Judge, in which a Prosecutor will represent the state, city or township, and the respondent may be represented by an attorney.

Upon admitting responsibility or being found responsible, the violation is reported to the Secretary of State, which then posts the offense to the respondent's driving record and assesses points.

To request a hearing, submit an Online Hearing Request.
