Traffic tickets are the most common citations issued by law enforcement in Southern California and across the country. Most drivers will receive a traffic ticket at some point in their lives. Traffic tickets require paying fines, which can significantly increase your car insurance rate and even result in a driver’s license suspension. There is a multitude of laws that regulate driving, and the penalties you may face for a traffic violation depend on the specific circumstances of your case.

What Happens If You Ignore a Traffic Citation?
You should never ignore a traffic citation. Doing so is a violation of California Vehicle Code 40508 for failing to appear in court on a traffic citation. This is a misdemeanor with significant consequences, including up to 6 months in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000. Furthermore, a driver who fails to appear or pay a fine will have a criminal record that will interfere with their career and personal life. It’s important to respond to any traffic ticket you receive in a timely manner.
