A: Call a Maryland lawyer, have the lawyer look up the citations in the online case search system, and the lawyer can determine what can be done in terms of dealing with the situation without you having to come back, and without serious repercussions to your license.

A: Counsel is completely right. Depending on the situation, it may be an easy fix, but it might have a Failure to Appear or worse, a bench warrant attached to it.
