Traffic infractions are enforced by the issuance of traffic tickets (""citations") by law enforcement.
Punishment for such infractions include payment of fines and do not carry any potential jail or prison time and do not necessarily require a court appearance.
Other, more serious automobile related matters, such as reckless driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI), and vehicular manslaughter, are either misdemeanors or felonies, carry potential jail or prison time as possible punishment, and are addressed as Criminal matters.
Fraudulent or altered documentation may be referred to the Office of the District Attorney for a full investigation and possible criminal prosecution.
