Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If the citation was issued to your father, then it technically has nothing to do with you, and you would not be liable for the ticket just because it was obtained in your vehicle.
Also, unless you are your father's power of attorney or legal guardian, it is not likely that the authorities from the jurisdiction where the ticket was given would even speak with you about it.
But, you should speak with your dad about the citation and find out what the issue is, whether he paid it, etc. If he hasn't the court has probably issued a bench warrant for him.......this bench warrant wouldn't be something that would be served on him out of state......but if he ever went back to the state where the warrant was issued and was stopped at a road block, etc., he'd likely be arrested on the spot.
