Please Be Advised:
Your signature on a citation is not a plea of guilt, it is a promise to appear. You are to APPEAR before the Municipal Court, on or before the tenth (10th) day from the date of citation. The following business day shall be the final date TO APPEAR if the tenth day falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or Holiday. Appearance may be made in person or by mail. An appearance cannot be made by phone. Failure to appear within 10 days constitutes a separate offense and a warrant of arrest will be issued. Those that reside out of town, may enter their plea in writing. Payment of citation also consitutes a plea of "No Contest."

Citations issued to minors (persons under the age of 17) must appear with a parent or guardian.

Do not appear before the third business day after you receive a citation; however, you must appear no later than the 10th day. 

If you fail to appear in court as required by law, you may be denied the renewal of your driver's license and assessed additional fee(s).
