Q: If i got a Traffic violation ticket in a company vehicle during business hours, do I have to pay the ticket? State MD
If your name is on the ticket, then it is your responsibility. If you fail to take care of it, your license will be suspended.
Now, if it is a moving violation, do not pay it. Request a trial within 30 days and go to court. You do not want to receive points on your license.
A: Is it a camera ticket? That’s going to the registered owner of the vehicle and will be an issue between you and your employer. If it’s issued to you after a stop, you are the one being charged with the violation, unless it’s equipment related. If it’s not based on a moving violation, then you should get your employer to pay this. If it’s a moving violation, it’s all on you and will go on your license. For instance, speeding tickets go on the driver’s record, not the vehicle owner’s.
