A strict liability offense means that there is no need to prove fault or criminal intent; all that is needed is proof that the accused committed the illegal action. Most traffic tickets are strict liability offenses, including speeding, failure to signal, failure to yield, driving with a burned out headlight or break-light, and overdue parking meters.
