Misdemeanor traffic offenses are generally non-expunge-able and stay on your record for the rest of your life.
If you were recently cited a traffic violation such as speeding, it’s important that you take legal action as soon as possible. While one traffic citation may not seem like a big deal, the expenses associated with routine traffic tickets have increased dramatically in the last 20 years. Not only do insurance premiums increase, but it opens a gateway for not being given any future breaks on future traffic stops. The law enforcement agencies do not feel guilty about further blemishing a driver’s record. Further, although the “points” may drop off, the ticket does not. Ten years from now, a traffic violation that a driver was convicted of, is still out there for police entities to see and invites more tickets to be written in the unfortunate event of a future traffic stop. Lastly, 3 tickets in three years, alerts the Secretary of State to pull a driver’s record for review for license suspension. For CDL (Commercial Driving License) holders, one ticket can cost them their job. Two tickets in two years, causes immediate ineligibility for renewal of privileges to drive a Commercial Motor Vehicle. We recommend defending all moving violations, even zero pointers.
For that reason, you need an experienced attorney to assist you with any new or old traffic ticket matter.

What is Reckless Driving in Michigan?
Michigan Law (MCL 257.626) is defined as operating a motor vehicle on a public roadway, including parking lots, with a wanton or willful disregard for the safety of persons or property. It is a very serious charge with penalties almost as harsh as Drunk Driving. Great care should be taken up front to defend this allegation. Reckless Driving is a criminal misdemeanor. If convicted, like a tattoo, it stays with you for life.
Good news is, being represented by a knowledgeable, respected, aggressive attorney with expertise, reckless driving is almost always a winnable charge. The prosecution bears the burden of proof, beyond a reasonable doubt, that willful, wanton, disregard for life, or for property, existed.
