DUI - DWI - Drunk Driving Defense Attorney
Payable Traffic Citations
For many years, if someone was charged with a payable traffic citation in Maryland, they did not need to do anything if they wanted to contest the ticket(s) at trial. If the citation was not paid, the court would just set a court date.
The law was changed by the legislature effective January 1, 2011. Now, if you want to contest the ticket, you must follow the directions on the ticket to request a trial date within thirty days of receiving the ticket. This is causing a lot of confusion. If you neither pay the ticket nor request a trial date within thirty days, the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) will then suspend your driving privilege for failure to comply.
Many people are unaware, and frankly quite surprised, to learn their license is suspended while they honestly thought they were waiting for the trial date that had not yet been set. Be careful!
