The quickest way to find yourself in trouble with the law is forgetting to take care of your traffic tickets. When you are issued a Uniform Traffic Citation you have 30 days to comply. Most instances you have several options, 1.) pay the fine 2). Opt for school 3.) contest the ticket. If you fail to do any of these options within the 30 day limit, your license will be D6 suspended. If you get caught driving on a suspended license, you could be charged with a misdemeanor and be taken to jail. If you get caught three times driving on a suspended license within 5 years, you will lose your license for 5 years.
Take action when you first receive any traffic tickets. Figure out what is the best option for you. If you choose option 1, you could end up with points on your license. If you are eligible for driving school under option 2, you could save your self the points but you will have to pay the ticket and do traffic school. If you contest your ticket, you may have the ticket dismissed, the fine lowered, and avoid points. Option 3 may be your best choice.
