How can I get a continuance on my court date for speeding?

Asked about 1 year ago - Menomonie, WI

I got a speeding ticket on 5/30/13 and my court date is 7/17/13, next wednesday. I will be out of town and will not be able to be at court that day. I have no other speeding tickets on my record and no other criminal record.

    Answered . Generally a not guilty plea can be entered by mail on civil traffic offenses. Call the court clerk and ask about their local procedures for adjourning (or rescheduling) the initial appearance or for entry of a not guilty plea by writing. This page provides a very basic example "not guilty notice" form for the Madison Municipal Court:
