Since these matters are summary offenses, you will receive a ticket in the mail or at the scene citing you with the charges. There is a timeframe in which you must plead guilty or not guilty. Pleading not guilty permits you to have a court hearing (summary trial) scheduled just like the “college crimes” section states. Again, at this court date, it is typical that you will either have a trial or work out an agreement with the citing law enforcement officer. Many people view these types of cases as minor, but the collateral consequences to your driving privileges, insurance premiums, and at times, liberty should make you take them seriously.
