One of the worst things a driver can do is ignore a ticket. Every driver will have the option to plead guilty or not guilty. Instructions on how to send your plea are provided on the ticket.
Pleading Not Guilty: Once the court has received your not guilty plea, you will receive a court notice. This notice will advise you when to go to court for your court appearance. At this court appearance you will be given the opportunity to present your case’s strengths and weaknesses. Please be sure not to miss your court date.

Pleading Guilty: Once the court receives your guilty plea, the court will send you a fine notice. This fine must be paid in full by the date provided. Failure to pay this fine can result in a suspension of your driver’s license.
Please note pleading guilty to a speeding violation is equivalent to being convicted after a trial. You may face a lot of financial consequences, such as fines to the court and the DMV, points on your license, and insurance increases.Court Tidbits and Tips

What to Bring: We advise that all litigants bring their court notice and driving record with them. The court notice will help a court personnel direct you if you are displaced and the driving record, if it is clean, can help settle your case.
We also advise you bring enough money to pay any court fees or fines if your case is settled at the court appearance.
Check-in: It is important that upon your arrival to court you check in with the court clerk. Failure to notify the court clerk of your presence may result in your case not being called.
Dress Code: Although there is no official dress code, we highly recommend you wear formal attire. Many judges often frown upon those litigants who come to court in shorts, tank tops, open-toed sandals, or other similar items.Ticket Information
