How long do I need to wait for a decision in a traffic ticket case?

Usually, a judge will make their decision immediately after hearing the case, but this does not always happen. If you did not consent to a delay in the judge making their decision, you may have a basis for an appeal. Sometimes a driver will receive the decision in the mail, which means that it might have been lost in the mail if they do not receive it. You will need to file an appeal within a short time of the decision, typically about 30 days, so you should follow up with the court every few weeks to make sure that the decision has not been mailed.
