Traffic and Criminal Law: Notice to Appear Forms (PDF, 762 KB)
Item Number: SP14-10
Deadline for Comments: December 1, 2014 5:00 PM (Pacific)
Submit Comment Online Or, email: invitations@jud.ca.gov

Vehicle Code section 40500(b) authorizes the Judicial Council to prescribe the form of a Notice to Appear that is issued when a person is arrested for misdemeanor or infraction violations of the Vehicle Code. Penal Code section 853.9 further authorizes the council to approve Notice to Appear forms for nontraffic offenses. Penal Code section 959.1(d) permits a Notice to Appear issued on a form approved by the Judicial Council to be received and filed by a court in electronic form. In response to issues courts have reported with electronic citation forms and procedures and to improve uniformity of the content of Notice to Appear forms used for electronic citations issued by arresting officers, the Traffic Advisory Committee recommends amendments of the California Rules of Court and forms as specified effective April 1, 2015.
