Question: What happens if you do not show up at court for a speeding ticket in Los Angeles?

Answer: You or your attorney needs to show up in Court in Los Angeles. If there is a failure to show up, the court would likely add an additional charge of Failure to Appear, charge an additional civil penalty, and may place a suspension on your license. It is possible for a court to also issue a bench warrant for your failure to appear. Part of the issue would depend on whether or not you have paid bail on the ticket before failing to show up.
