ANATOMY OF A TRAFFIC CITATION:
I got a ticket. What happens now?
To celebrate Municipal Courts week, the City of Lufkin Municipal Court will be hosting a traffic safety symposium, on Thursday, November 10, 2016, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Lufkin Municipal Court.
This seminar gives the community the opportunity to converse with the Judge and other court staff regarding court processes, options to handle a traffic citation, consequences of traffic convictions, warrants, surcharges, obtaining a driver’s license, and much more.
Our court’s top priority continues to remain the administration of fair and impartial justice. However, we are also concerned with educating the public about how a simple traffic citation can affect the rest of your life. Please stop by to have your questions answered and gain more knowledge about our judicial system as it relates to traffic citations, and what happens after your court appearance.
To learn more call us at (936)-633-0315.
