You have just received a complaint for a traffic offense and are probably asking yourself "What do I do now?" If the charges are DUI, drag racing, reckless driving, or driving on a suspended license, you must appear in Court on the Appearance Date and time listed on your complaint and go before a Judge.
FOR ALL OTHER OFFENSES, you may:
FAILURE TO RESPOND by the APPEARANCE DATE on a CIVIL Traffic complaint will result in a default judgment being entered against you. A civil fine amount will be imposed (the amount listed on the fine schedule, plus $97.00 default fees), the Department of Motor Vehicles (MVD) will be notified, your case will be sent to a collection agency, and your license will be suspended until the entire fee is paid to the Court.
FAILURE TO RESPOND by the APPEARANCE DATE on a CRIMINAL Traffic complaint will result in a warrant for your arrest being issued and your license being suspended.
