Keep in mind that there’s no need to appear in court even if you have a traffic citation for violating traffic rules. You look in the court if you intend to file a dispute against the ticket. This is where you have the opportunity to prove that you are innocent. Of course, you just need to do this if you really deem that you did nothing wrong. Don’t worry. Doing this is your right. The court will not legally charge you with this act.
Appearing in the court is also necessary whenever you have been involved in a serious traffic accident or any incident where there are alleged victims. It is a tedious process, but you need to partake on it to clear your name and avoid further complications.
