Title 40, Chapter 13, Section 58
Where a defendant cited for a traffic violation posts a cash bond
according to the schedule set up by court order and fails to appear
in court at the term of court and on the day set in the original
citation and complaint, then and in that event, such failure shall
be construed as an admission of guilt and the cash bond may be
forfeited without the necessity for the statutory procedure provided
for the forfeiture of statutory bail bonds. A judgment of guilty may
be entered accordingly, ordering the case disposed of and settled.
The proceeds of the cash bond shall be applied and distributed as
any fine imposed by said court would be. Nothing in this Code
section shall be construed as preventing the judge from ordering the
defendant to appear and stand trial.
