Customer Question

My wife received a ticket for bypassing a traffic sign. However, she was not asked to sign the ticket and we cannot find any evidence of it under the court records. Does this mean the ticket is void because it wasn't signed?

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

No. The ticket is valid if it has been property entered into the court system. Sometimes, it takes a few days to a week to have it entered. So check back or call the clerk of the court directly.

The signature does not make the ticket valid. It is only a "promise" that the offender will appear in court.
