Where can I look up the Vehicle Code on my traffic ticket? Specifically VC40508a?
The California Vehicle Code is on the California Legislative website. You can looks up certain codes by finding the range they fall and, and clicking on the range.
For example, the page Vehicle Code Section 40500-40522 contains the Vehicle Code VC40508a, which is a failure to appear violation the Court adds when you have not taken care of your citation in a timely manner. The violation is reported to DMV. DMV will place a hold on your driver's license. If you incur multiple VC40508a violations, DMV will suspend your driver's license. Your options are to post bail or schedule a court appearance.
