Summons Violation Ticket, such tickets are pink in color, and read “Part 2, Summons” in the top right corner. A Summons Violation will have a complaint noting the accusations, and a summon noting a date to appear in the Court. Such ticket only require you to appear in court before a Judge.
However, the Offence Notice Violation Tickets are generally yellow in color, and read “Part 3, Offence Notice” in the top right corner. Such ticket will have a certificate of offense in first place noting the accusation, and also an offense notice. An offense notice always has the option of voluntary payment, unlike the Summons Violations Tickets.
Depending upon what the ticket requires, you may be required to pay a certain amount of fine or appear before the court. In the case of the option of voluntary payment, such payment is made before the date of a court appearance. Such payment when made, however, is considered both a guilty plea as well as a conviction.

Once you appear before the court and make a not guilty plea, you’ll be provided with a trial date.
