  • Don't ignore it. Call them and tell them the situation.

  • I would not ignore any body that has the ability to issue a bench warrant on me. I would rather answer them and do things the grown up way.

  • Ignore them long enough and you can end up going to jail if you're in a car that gets pulled over.

  • I've never gotten one and I want to serve! I'm 39 and have never received a summons, but my husband has gotten 2 in the last couple years.

  • Call and explain the situation. Or suck it up and call a taxi.

  • i haven't gotten one in awhile, but if I do I call andremind them that I can't . They send a bus pass here so the no vehicle won't cut it as a reason.

  • I've gotten 2 in less then a year. Just fill it out and explain you have no transportation. I got out by explaining I was a single mom and skipping work for jury duty on who knows how long would really burden me financially.

  • I've only gotten one once...from the town I grew up in after being married for at least 5 years and not living there....oh, and it was in my maiden name. My mom responded and said I no longer lived there, and that was no longer my name (oh, and I got MARRIED in that town, go figure!).

  • Yes. But if you have no transportation callnand tell them and they will excuse it as a hardship.
