Novi has admitted they r wrong here. Even in poorer parts of usa they don't rely that much on tickets. Novi and other cities should use taxes wisely. Look onto " new lorain high school" and see how this poorer city funded just their new public school buildings. Even poor families in this city will have chance to send their kids to modern schools publicly. Michigan should use their formula of how they used taxes wisely and accrued enough to building cutting edge public schools. Don't ask poor to pay for mistakes like ficano and kwame and others have made financially. If. People want to contribute so be it. Quotas r ridiculous and illegal and harassment.

I am familiar with WC Sheriff, Livonia, Plymouth and Dearborn Heights. They will routinely write bogus ticket and challenge you to take it to court. Play your cards right and you can get away with a fine and no points. It's all about the cash. Ticket money is split with the state, county, city and the court. All of these entities have an interest in taking your money.

More power to the officer for standing up for justice. Unfortunately, Novi will write more tickets to pay the bill.

And they don't have to have every reason to pull you over.i used to go to flight club in inkster. Would park car at another place .labor day 2002 i arrived at car. Gave them no reason to pull me over. But they found a reason. Went through the walking line etc. Had me blow twice. Told me to get out of car. I was putting hands behind back and he told me i'm free to go. Never asked what i blew.i stayed in there many hours and dissipated enough beer.
