How Long do I Have to Respond to the Citation Once it is Issued?

On a civil traffic infraction, you have thirty (30) days to either plead not guilty or request a hearing date or pay the ticket. If you do not reply within the thirty (30) days, you will be late, and a late fee will be applied by the court. Furthermore, the court will suspend your license, and you will have to reinstate the license which also requires a fee. Different counties may have different rules as to how you can or when you can pay a late fee and receive a clearance to remove the suspension.
