I’m an Michigan Driver with a Speeding Ticket in Wisconsin, what are the consequences?

OVERVIEW: PENALTIES FOR MICHIGAN DRIVERS WITH SPEEDING TICKETS IN WISCONSIN

Michigan and Wisconsin share contiguous geographic borders and it is not uncommon for Michigan licensed drivers to travel into Wisconsin for work or pleasure. Unfamiliar with changing speed limits or certain areas in Wisconsin could lead to speeding tickets or other citations for Michigan drivers that could result in serious consequences to the Michigan drivers record once the convictions are reported to the Michigan Secretary of State. The Michigan Secretary of State confirms that action will be taken on out-of-state violations and comparable points can be assessed to the Michigan Driver's record. Please visit here for confirmation and further details: http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,4670,7-127-5647_12539_71028-88474–,00.html

The accumulation of points for the Michigan is similar to the point structure in Wisconsin as 12 points in a given period will result in a Suspension of the Michigan driver's license. Please visit here for a detailed outline of Michigan traffic offenses and corresponding points:

WHAT CAN A WISCONSIN TRAFFIC ATTORNEY DO TO HELP PROTECT A MICHIGAN LICENSED DRIVER?

Although speeding offenses can transfer and get reported to Michigan from Wisconsin there is still hope for relief for Michigan Drivers. Generally speaking, with proper representation many Wisconsin State and Municipal prosecutors are willing to amend a speeding charge to a non-moving violation when appropriate for respectful drivers with a otherwise clean record. The end result is that an Michigan Driver can pay an amended ticket in Wisconsin that will have no impact on their Michigan License. Once you have retained Richard Albanese you will likely not have to appear in court to contest your ticket, which saves not only a long trip back to Wisconsin from Michigan, but also saves time and the expense of having to take a day off work to appear on a citation.
