Types of California Traffic Tickets

California law categorizes all traffic citations into one of three categories: parking tickets, infraction traffic tickets, and misdemeanor traffic tickets. Each category comes with its own set of penalties, as listed below.

Parking Tickets

When you receive a parking ticket, you will be ordered to pay the parking agency governing the area in which your ticket was given. You can either choose to pay it or, if you feel you should not have gotten the ticket, you can reach out to the parking agency to learn more about your options.

It's important to note that parking citations are not criminal violations in California, therefore, you cannot be arrested for failing to pay your parking ticket. However, failure to pay your ticket can lead to higher fees and prevent you from registering your vehicle.

Infraction Traffic Tickets

Common examples of traffic infractions include speeding and running red lights. You could also receive an infraction traffic ticket for something correctable, like a broken tail light. For these kinds of tickets, you can either appear in court in person or by filing a pleading in response to the citation, or pay the fine assigned to you.

Misdemeanor Traffic Tickets

More serious actions like driving under the influence or without a license can result in a misdemeanor traffic ticket. Not only will you have to appear in court, but you could also be facing hefty fines, the loss of your driver's license, and potential jail time.
