If a criminal case, you should contact the Probation Department TODAY and make arrangements to get into Court to answer the charges. If a small claim, you will probably have had judgments entered against you. If so, you would need to file a Motion to Vacate the Judgment citing the reason you missed Court. If you need assistance, call me at...

    I would also advise that you take reasonable steps to secure the property (land and buildings) and make sure that a friend, family member or a property manager keeps a close eye on it for as long as it's in your name. This is especially true if you are just going to "drive away."

Talk to a lawyer, even just to get a sense of what he/she can do to help you get the car back.
