    Answered . You have the option of not appearing in court but be careful. This could result in your receiving a conviction which could have been avoided. Read your citation carefully. Consult with a traffic attorney if you are unsure. Sometimes spending a couple dollars more to hire counsel will result in a better driving record for you, which is worth more in the long run.

    I recommend speaking to a traffic attorney about the ticket to see what the effect of that may be. Most of us that handle traffic regularly offer free consultations.
    You may only have so many convictions in a given time period before the SOS will suspend your driving privileges.
