I have a traffic ticket with an appearance date, but the officer did not check the box labeled “court appearance required.” Do I need to come to court?
Not usually, this date is the date in which the ticket must be paid to avoid late fees. However, there are times the officer inadvertently does not mark the box when the violation does require a court appearance. You may the check the
