A: Really?!? Show up on the date the police officer listed then - and you'll be arrested for failure to report, in addition to having to deal with the underlying citation offense. The justice system isn't a game of gotcha. Respect the law and deal with the citation. Get a lawyer if you want to contest the ticket.
