Report Traffic Problems

Specific traffic issues and problems can be directed to the main number of the Taylor Police Department any time of the day or night at 734-287-6611 or by contact form. Please include the precise traffic problem, i.e., speeding, reckless drivers, motorists not stopping at stop signs, etc. Also be sure to include the location or nearest intersection of the traffic problem as well as if it is occurring at a certain time of day or night. With this information, the Traffic Division can better delegate traffic enforcement to target individual problems.

Reporting a Traffic Accident

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 often easiest 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 front desk of the police station.

Traffic Fines

Fines for traffic offenses are established by the 23rd District Court. Requests to schedule hearings to appeal a citation should be directed to the court by the date indicated on the front of the citation. The court can be contacted Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 734-374-1334. The 23rd District Court is located between the Fire Department and Police Department on Goddard Road just east of Telegraph. The court address is 23365 Goddard Road, Taylor, MI 48180-4116.
