Traffic Cases

 

The 33rd District Court's Traffic Division handles cases where a traffic violation has occurred. The two types of traffic violations are:

  • Civil Infractions
  • Civil Infractions, marked as "C. I." on a ticket, are minor traffic violations, such as speeding, illegal turns, booster seat violations, seatbelt violations, etc... Civil Infraction traffic violations are non-criminal violations and punishable by only fines and costs. Depending on the violation, the Secretary of State may add points to your driving record.

  • Misdemeanors
  • Misdemeanors, marked as "Misd" on a citation, are usually more serious traffic violations that can result in arrest. The maximum penalty for crimes in this category is $1,000 and/or up to one year in jail. Most misdemeanor cases require a mandatory court appearance. Failure to appear can result in a warrant for your arrest.
