ENTERING A PLEA TO A TICKET:
Most tickets written will state that a driver needs to respond within 48 hours. It will also state that a driver must “return by mail before or in person on” x date. The most prudent approach to timely entering a not guilty plea would be to respond within 48 hours. The date that is written on the front of the ticket may end up being the driver’s court date but it is usually the drop-dead date for the driver to respond before they are suspended.
PLEA OF GUILTY BY MAIL:
A plea of guilty to the charge is equivalent to a conviction after trial. A conviction will not only subject the driver to a penalty but in addition the driver’s license to drive can be subject to suspension and revocation as prescribed by law.
Drivers are responsible for notifying the court of their address changes. Failure to do so could result in their missing a court date and can ultimately lead to the suspension of their privilege to drive.
You must respond to the summons to prevent a suspension of your driver’s license or driving privileges. It is a crime to drive with a suspended or revoked license.
If you have a speeding ticket and possess a junior license, you may be required to appear in court regardless of your plea. A driver with a junior license (DJ) should be very careful in resolving their matters because the DMV has more stringent guidelines for young drivers.
