1. The usual course a District Court Judge adopts if a person does not appear to a Summons is that a bench warrant is issued compelling the person to attend the next time the Court sits in that town. This means that the Gardai will attend at a person's home and formally arrest them to attend at the next District Court sittings if the person will not agree voluntarily with the Garda to attend at the next sittings. It is easier to appear the first time and face the music. However, there is always the possibility that the case might be overlooked. However, this rarely happens.
