I was just pulled over going 26 over the 65mph zone. I was not really paying attention to my speed. The officer told me I had to appear in court and did not get a ticket, because I was going 26 over. I don't what to do? Will I lose my license? What will happen that day?
Country relating to Question: United States
State (if USA): Wisconsin
If you did not sign a "promise to appear" (also known as a Traffic Ticket or traffic citation), you probably dont have to do anything at all.
You did not get a ticket?
Woo Hoo! You got away with it. Watch your mail to see if they send you a demand to appear.
But if you did not sign a promise to appear, and did not get a notice of court date - you dont need to do anything.
Did you get arrested?
If not, you're free! ride like the wind!
Hope this helped. Follow up ?s ok.
