When you fail to respond to your ticket within 15 days as directed on your copy of the citation OR when you fail to appear in Court as directed the Court will take action to commit your ticket, assess a penalty, and place a suspension on your driver’s license. After the Court takes this action your only option for a hearing is to request a “Show Cause Hearing” pursuant to CR LJ 60(b). You must do so in writing, handwritten or typed. The show cause hearing is simply to address the issue of your failure to appear in Court as directed or failure to respond to your ticket as directed under IR LJ 3.2. If the judge finds “Good Cause” or simply a good reason for your failure to respond or to appear then he/she may decide to set a hearing of your choice. You may then proceed with a Mitigation (see above description). Download Motion For Show Cause form.
