Court Facts and Tidbits

Tip: Drivers must timely respond to a traffic summons to prevent a suspension of their privilege to drive. Once the department of motor vehicles has been notified that a license should be suspended, it can be very difficult to undo the suspension. The process of un-suspending a license can include the payment of a suspension lift fee, the payment of a bond, and an appearance in court.

Security: Immediately prior to entering the court, you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer and asked to turn off all electronic devices.

Respect: If you are a litigant in court, it is important to remember that the court is considered a place of respect. As such, all attendees are asked to dress appropriately; turn off all electronic devices, and to leave all food and drinks outside of the court.

Junior 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.

If Found Guilty: If you are found guilty of speeding there are several ways this can affect you. This may include high fines to the court, penalty fines to the Department of Motor Vehicles, insurance increases and even incarceration.

Suspension: There are many different ways that a motorist could have their license to drive suspended. Some of the reasons are as followed:

  1. Failure to answering your ticket – if you do not enter a plea by the date given on your ticket, your license can get suspended.
  2. Failure to paying court fines- if you plead guilty, you must pay your fine notice by the date provided. Or if your case has been resolved, if there are any fines, those must be paid by the given date. Failure to do so can lead to your license getting suspended.
  3. Points- if you accumulate 11 points on your driving license, your driving license will get suspended. It is important to know how many points you have at all times.
  4. Work Zone – if you have received 2 work zone tickets, this can lead to your license getting suspended as well.

It is a crime to drive with a suspended license, if you possess a suspended license and are pulled over, the officer can arrest you and impound your car.
