Feel free to call me regarding this traffic matter at 810-227-7200 so I can thoroughly answer your question in detail along with any additional questions you may have. After helping thousands and people on LawGuru I have found this to be the most effective way.
It means that you didn't do something that the court told you to do (like show up). So now the judge wants you to show up on the new hearing date to explain why you didn't do what you were told to do.
If the court doesn't appreciate your excuse, you could sit in jail for a while.
