  • Options for a Traffic Violation

    When it comes to traffic violations, the officer will indicate on the citation if a court appearance is necessary or not. This is important in deciding how you will handle your specific case. Please read below about your options if you're required to appear in court and what you can do if you’re not required to appear in court.

  • No Court Appearance Required

    If your appearance in court is not required, it means you committed a minor offense. In these cases, you have three options for dealing with this problem.

    Option #1 – First, you can accept the ticket, plead guilty and pay the fine. In this case, a conviction will go on your record.
    Option #2 – You can also plead guilty and request court supervision. This means that you’ll be driving on probation essentially, and after a certain period of time, your violation will be expunged from your record.
    Option #3 – If you did not commit this act, you might want to plead not guilty and request a trial. However, you must be able to prove that you didn’t do what you were ticketed for, and you may need to hire a traffic lawyer.

    Court Appearance Required

    If a court appearance is required, it means that you committed more than a minor offense. In these cases, it still may be possible to get the ticket expunged from your record, depending on the citation, but you’ll probably need to hire a traffic law attorney to help you navigate these legal issues.
