What does it mean to “waive” a traffic offense?
For some traffic offenses, such as minor speeding violations and equipment violations, you have the option of handling your case without going to court by paying the fine and court costs before your court date. These offenses are often called “waivable” offenses, because if you choose this option, you “waive,” or give up, your right to appear in court and contest the ticket. If you “waive” an offense by paying in full rather than going to court, you will be treated as if you were found guilty or responsible as charged, including any effects on your driver’s license or automobile insurance. If you choose not to waive an offense, you can attend court, or in some cases an attorney can appear in court for you.
