Questions about Citation Number

Citation numbers are easily found on traffic citations that are issued. Individuals that have inquired about offenses are typically asked for the citation number. Losing the ticket or not being able to find the citation number on the ticket often lead to questions like the ones answered below.

I lost my original traffic ticket. How do I obtain my traffic ticket citation number?

Even though you lost your original traffic ticket you will still be able to obtain the ticket citation number. You can contact the municipality where you were issued the citation. The clerk will need your name and that you received a ticket but you have since lost it. They will then look it up on their computer and give you the information including the citation number.

I have an assault citation in Texas with the status “warrant hold” on it. I was never given a ticket or a citation number. If I was never given a ticket or charged, how can I have this assault citation on my record?

The criminal laws of Texas state that you can be charged with assault if you:
(1) Intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause bodily injury to someone else, including your spouse.
(2) Intentionally or knowingly threaten someone else, including your spouse, with imminent bodily injury.
(3) Intentionally or knowingly cause physical contact with another when the person knows or should reasonably believe that the other will regard the contact as offensive or provocative.

So not only can you be charge if you actually hit, kick or choke someone but you can be charged if you simply tell someone that you are going to beat them up or if that person has a reasonable fear that you are about to beat them up, then you can be charged with assault.

You will need to contact the court and request the citation number. You will have a better knowledge of the crime and charges with the citation number.

Can I receive a citation for passing a stopped school bus even when it was not witnessed by a police officer?

A police officer can issue a citation based on the information given to them by a school bus driver. Police officers are not able to follow school buses around looking for violations so oftentimes school bus drivers do report offenders.

How do I figure out what a certain traffic citation number means?

Citation numbers can be looked up to find out what crime/offense was committed. You could match your citation number to the crime in the criminal traffic code for your specific state. Each state has their own unique citation numbers.

I ran a red light in Virginia but I live in North Carolina and would like to take care of the ticket. I do not have a citation number as I have not received the ticket yet. I am going out of town for a long period of time. How can I proceed to take care of the ticket?

You would first need to wait for the ticket to actually be issued. There is a chance that you might not get a ticket. Typically the ticket takes a few weeks for an individual to receive it. The normal response time on this type of ticket is 30 days. If you are going to be out of town you could always check online to see if in fact the ticket appears. You may have the option to pay the ticket online as well. The online service typically requires a citation number which can be found on the ticket itself. So you may need to call the county clerk and request the information.

Being knowledgeable and gathering information about citation numbers can help greatly when dealing with offenses. Experts can help answer questions about where to find what your citation number means or how to get your citation number from the court clerk. Get the answers fast and affordably by asking an Expert.

    I'm a mexican national. My car was impounded today at a police checkpoint near Encinitas, ca. This is the second time I have had my car impounded in the last several years. I do not have a Calif drivers license (only a Mexican licence). Does the 2012 law disallowing the impounding of cars for lack of license apply here? Are there any legal options that may allow me to avoid the horrendous impoundment charges?
