Is signing a ticket an admission of guilt?

Criminal Law

A common misconception is that when an individual is given a traffic citation, be it criminal (such as one of these, a DUI or DWLSR) or civil (such as speeding, careless driving, or failure to wear a seatbelt), that signing the ticket is a confession of guilt. It is not. You are required by law to sign the ticket as proof of receipt of that ticket. Willful failure to do so may result in being charged with another criminal traffic offense.


I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
They are true and loyal to their clients.
I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
