    Default Speeding Ticket Dismissal

    I received my first speeding ticket and the instructions on the back of the ticket state I have 7 days to appear in court or pay the fines by pleading guilty. However, the court date assigned to me is only 6 days from the date of the ticket. Can I get a dismissal in the state of Ohio for not following the legal process?

    Default Ohio Traffic Ticket

    As I understand things, Ohio permits you to pay or otherwise respond to a waiverable ticket within seven days, but requires a court appearance for non-waiverable tickets. It may be that your ticket is non-waiverable, and thus you must appear in court. I also understand that you can get a single, automatic adjournment of the hearing date if it is inconvenient, ordinarily adjourning the hearing over to the following week. Ohio's traffic court rules can be reviewed in detail here.
