Citation Information

A citation is utilized by an authorized authority to cite a violator of a city ordinance or state statute into court. Citations are issued for traffic and non-traffic violations alike. Citations have a lot of information on them, and it may seem difficult to locate a specific item on them, such as date of violation or date to appear in court.
