If your court date has passed and you have not responded, your ticket is now delinquent.
In the eyes of the court you did not keep your promise to appear, a promise you made in the presence of a law officer who gave you the ticket. This fact is clearly mentioned on the very top of the ticket which says, “Promise To Appear”. Courts do not take this fact lightly and they immediately proceed to “punish” you for breaking your promise. Generally the court would add $300 to the usual fine for failing to appear. In Los Angeles area, as of this writing, the courts will also forward your ticket to G C Services, a court appointed collection agency, for further collection activities. The behavior of G C Services is what you would expect of a collection agency. They are there to collect money and not render justice. If you were sick and missed the court date, too bad. G C Services will ask you to pay up.
