When Issued a Traffic Ticket, What Does “Failure to Appear” Mean?

Posted on behalf of Donahue & Walsh, P.C. | May 12, 2021

In Illinois, “Failure to Appear” when you are issued a traffic ticket means you were expected to show up for a court appearance but failed to do so. If this occurs, the Illinois Secretary of State is notified, and there is a chance that your license will be suspended. This is known as a “Failure to Appear” suspension.

If you wish to lift your license suspension, a lawyer typically must file a court motion.

In the face of traffic violation charges, contact Donahue & Walsh, P.C. If you drive with a suspended or revoked license in the state of Illinois, you could be facing consequences that include a felony charge, and at least a year in jail. Guarding your freedom is paramount.
