A: It's fairly common that officers don't issue the citation at the scene, and then it gets mailed later. That is often because of a technology problem, but can be for other reasons as well. You should probably check with the court for your location to see if anything has been filed. Also confirm that the DOL has your current mailing address, that is often the address they will use to send the ticket. You can also work with an attorney in your area who could do the research to see if you have been cited.
