One of the most important things you have to do once you receive a speeding ticket is entering your plea. You have the option of entering a guilty or a not guilty plea. Directions on how to do so are provided on your ticket.
Entering a Not Guilty Plea: If you enter a not guilty plea, the court will send you a court notice upon receiving your plea. Your court notice will tell you when your court appearance is.
Entering a Guilty Plea: If you enter a guilty plea, the court will send you a fine notice upon receiving your plea. Please keep in mind that entering a guilty plea is the equivalent to a conviction after a trial. This can lead to many long-term financial consequences such as insurance increases and high fines and fees.
Court Appearance: If you plead not guilty, your court appearance is your opportunity to present your case’s strengths. If your case is resolved on the day of your court appearance, you can pay the appropriate court fines to the court clerk.Court Tips and Tidbits
