So you were pulled over by a law enforcement officer and given a traffic ticket yet because of life’s other responsibilities, you can’t seem to remember where you may have left the traffic ticket. Because most, if not all of the necessary information you need to take care of the citation is on the ticket, losing it can be a problem if you don’t remember what you were cited for or don’t know how to proceed. What do you do?
When receiving a traffic ticket or citation, you may wish to take a picture of it to keep it as a backup in case of such a scenario. Losing it may result in forgetting about it, which can lead to consequences such as losing your driving privileges, being forced to pay a higher insurance premium, or receiving points on your license.
Depending on the county in which you live, you may be able to find a copy of the citation by searching through online records. You may also be able to contact the count court directly to obtain information about the ticket. Alternatively, you can try contacting a traffic ticket attorney office which may be able to not only look up your traffic ticket but also fight it on your behalf.
