Motor Carrier Program

The Traffic Section has operated a Motor Carrier Enforcement program since 1997.  The programís objectives are two-fold:  first, to ensure the safety of the motoring public by assuring that truck drivers are obeying traffic laws and operating properly equipped vehicles; and second, to reduce potential damage to City roads by identifying improperly loaded or overloaded trucks.

Michigan law requires a written report to be filed if the crash occurred on a public roadway and resulted in an injury or combined damage in excess of $1,000.  It is best to report a traffic crash at the time it occurs.  Officers will respond to the scene when summoned to file such a report.  If you are filing a traffic crash report at a later time or date, you will need to contact the other involved party or parties and schedule a mutually acceptable time for all parties to appear at the station.  If possible, you should drive the involved vehicle so the officer taking the report may inspect the damage.  Reports can be made 24 hours a day at the command desk of the police station.

Traffic Fines
