I just missed a court date.

For a speeding ticket.

Thought it was the 10th of September, it was the 1st.

What do I do? I live in Cocke Country, if that helps.

EDIT. And I was apparently supposed to appear in court in Parrotsville.

1. Most Likely, If you contact the court

they will reschedule it. There is a possibility that they ruled in your absence and you will just have to pay what fine the judge ordered for this case.

2. In California this leads to a bench warrant. Contact the court.

3. You'll need to reschedule with the clerk of court ASAP

They'll also be able to tell you if a bench warrant has been issued for non appearance. If one has, turn yourself in at the cop shop. It beats having them break down your door at 4 AM to serve the damned thing.
