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 wanted to thank the Draper Law firm for representing me in my recent personal injury case. It was truly a pleasure and honor to work with the firm, and I had a wonderful experience working with the staff, who was very friendly and courteous throughout the entire process.
The quality of legal service more than exceeded my expectations. The attorney answered all my questions, treated me with respect, and explained every detail - every step of the way. This was important to help me understand the process. In fact, I was made to feel like "part of the family" from the very first appointment.
I would definitely recommend the staff of attorneys at Draper Law Office to anyone who is seeking legal services, as I believe they, too, will have a great experience. In addition, should I ever need services again, Draper Law Office will be my first call.
Once again, I thank you and your staff for a wonderful and seamless experience; I would like others to also learn about it so they too can benefit from such great service.
