It is not necessary to hire an attorney to represent you; however, you may hire an attorney to represent your case.
Your court date is listed on the middle portion of the citation you received. This is the date by which you are required to either appear in court or pay your fine.
If the violation is not a “court” offense, you may pay the fine to avoid an appearance in court. By paying the fine, you are entering a plea of guilty. You may also pay by the court date on your ticket.
If you neglect to pay your ticket or appear in court on your court date, your driver's license may be suspended by the Department of Safety. You may be required to pay a greater amount of fines in court, reinstatement fees to the Department of Safety, and any additional costs incurred with your insurance company. Unpaid citations are subject to collection agency fines, rules, and regulations.
