What Is Municipal Court in Alabama?

Municipal courts are lower level non-jury courts that handle misdemeanor traffic ticket cases.

Some states use municipal courts while others use district courts.

Such courts lack jury trial jurisdiction and can only handle a limited number of misdemeanor cases like license suspensions.

Generally, a higher number of traffic violations occur in larger cities.

There is a hub of interstate highways (e.g., I-20) within a 25-mile radius of downtown Birmingham. The high volume of cars and trucks generate thousands of traffic tickets for the Birmingham Municipal Court. Your Alabama DUI attorney will try to get a favorable deal for you at the Municipal Court in Alabama, before moving to a jury trial court.
