Moving Violation is the 11th studio album by The Jackson 5. It is the group's final album on Motown Records. Aiming at the developing disco market,[3] the group's funk-based version of Diana Ross & the Supremes' 1968 single "Forever Came Today" was a club hit, while the single's B-side, the R&B ballad "All I Do Is Think of You", became a popular and frequently covered song in its own right. The album sold 1.6 million copies worldwide.[4]

After the release of the album, the brothers left Motown due to the label refusing to let them write their own music and the group earning little album royalties. The only brother to stay with the label was Jermaine since he was married to Hazel Gordy, daughter of Motown CEO Berry Gordy. Motown allowed the group to leave the label. However, the group had to change their name, since The Jackson 5 moniker was owned by Motown. The brothers later signed with Philadelphia International Records and Epic Records with youngest Jackson brother Randy under their new name, The Jacksons.

The album was arranged by Michael Lovesmith, Arthur G. Wright, Dave Blumberg and James Anthony Carmichael with John Bahler and Michael Lovesmith responsible for the vocal arrangements. John Kosh was the album cover's designer with photography credited to Jim Britt.

In 2001, Motown Records remastered all J5 albums in a "Two Classic Albums/One CD" series (much like they did in the late 1980s). This album was paired up with Dancing Machine. The bonus tracks were the outtakes "Through Thick and Thin" (which appeared on 1976's Joyful Jukebox Music) and the Disc-o-Tech #3 Remix of "Forever Came Today".
