I was given a citation to Vermont Superior Court for Excessive Speed and given a speeding ticket payable to the Vermont Judicial Bureau for the same offense. Are these the same or different?
They are two separate citations. If you are given a speeding ticket then you are subject to points on your license and civil fines and fees. If you are given a citation to Vermont Superior Court for Excessive Speed you are also being charged with a crime. You (or your attorney) must appear in Vermont Superior Court for an arraignment on your Excessive Speed charge and if you fail to do so, a warrant for your arrest could issue. It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible when you are cited for Excessive Speed in Vermont. It can be confusing to understand what penalties you are facing and what your obligations are. At Burke Law we have years of experience defending Excessive Speed charges in Vermont.
