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.
