What is A Traffic Citation

A traffic citation is often known as a traffic ticket. Traffic citations are legal notices given out by a jurisdiction’s presiding law enforcement. For the United States, this can include city police, whether by patrolmen or law enforcement assigned specifically to check for stopped violations like illegally parking in a handicapped spot or a car parked too long at a paid meter, which has run out of time. Patrolmen often stop people for moving violations like speeding, running stop signs, failure to yield or even a variety of citations for car accidents. Highway patrolmen usually check for people speeding to issue them tickets, and the state and county police have the authority to issue traffic tickets for violations too.

The Result of Guilt for a Traffic Citation

It is always important to remember traffic citations are like any penal code violations. A motorist is simply being formally accused, and the motorist is innocent until proven guilty. Usually, a motorist will not dispute the citation. There is usually no point in it. In some instances and jurisdictions, a fine is given by the law enforcement agency issuing the citation, and the fine can be paid without even going to court, unless the motorist disputes the citation. The other jurisdictions,which issue the citations, are simply issuing them as a summons to go to a special court just for traffic. Next, the traffic court judge will determine guilt. Most people can safely bet on being found guilty, and they can also expect on having a fine issued as well. Failure to the pay the fine usually results a civil suit to get the money or in a warrant of arrest for contempt of court, which will also cost more money and possibly a short stay in jail. It’s important to verify your traffic records if you’ve received a citation. Perform a traffic citation search on yourself to verify it’s accurate.

Traffic Citation Codes

The point of having so many laws resulting in fines is to get revenue for the jurisdiction. Local governments will swear up and down it is to maintain law and order, and there is some truth to it. There is approximately $6 billion dollars a year generated by traffic citations, and the majority of citations come from speeding tickets. Of all the citations written, there are around 40 million speeding tickets issued annually.

  1. hello, my name is rodrigo de souza (Brazil) and in January of 2016 on vacation. I received a fine in Utah, and the bill was due to Jan, 22d, but I lost the paper.
    Now I want to pay the bill but I don’t know how to search, can you pls help me

    Thanks in advance

    • Hello Rodrigo,

      I would be happy to help. I am assuming your fine was from a Police officer however if it was very recent there will probably not be a public record on file that you can access yet. I would contact the police department directly and see about taking care of the fine. Here is a link to a nationwide directory of police departments …

      Best Regards,

      The Search Quarry Team
