Online Ticket Review

Harper Woods, MI

Frequently Asked Questions

What is online ticket review?

It's a way to have the Harper Woods City Attorney or Prosecutor review your traffic ticket without having to come to court for a hearing.

What are the benefits of online ticket review?

You could get your charge changed to one with no driver's license points. And you can do it online rather than going to court!

How is it different online than in court?

It's not. There's a real City Attorney and Prosecutor on the other side, making decisions about your case based on the same criteria they would if you went to court in person. It just takes place through this website.

How does it work?

You submit a request online for a reduced charge. If you are eligible, the City Attorney or Prosecutor reviews your request makes the final decision. You get a text or email with the result.

Is there a charge for online ticket review?

No.

Why does the court allow online traffic ticket review?

Everyone makes mistakes. If you have a good driving record, the City Attorney and Prosecutor may be willing to give you a lesser charge that does not add points to your license.

Why should I care about points on my license?

Having points on your license can raise your insurance rates, subject you to driver responsibility fees, or result in a suspension of your license to drive.

What happens if my request is rejected?

You have 5 days to admit responsibility and pay the ticket, deny responsibility and request a hearing, or admit responsibility with a written explanation. More information is on the back of your ticket.

How do I know if I'm eligible?

It depends on your record and other criteria set by the court and law enforcement. Just enter your ticket information and do a search to find the eligibility criteria. If you are, submit a request. Whether your request is approved is entirely up to the court and law enforcement.

What does it mean if I am ineligible?

It could mean your ticket is too old, or that you have too many past offenses or open tickets. Try a search. If you are ineligible, we'll tell you why.

If my request is approved, will I still have to pay a fine?

Yes. The fine could change based on the new charge. Either way, you are still responsible for paying it.

How will I know when a decision has been made?

We will send an email or text as well as update the message on your status page when you come back to the website. Full payment is due within 5 days.
