Traffic Tickets

1.  What do I do if I get a traffic ticket?

First, you DO NOT have to come into court, unless your ticket is a misdemeanor charge.  If you wish to plead GUILTY you may sign and date Part A on the ticket, mail it in and the Court will mail a fine notice back to you. If you wish to plead NOT GUILTY you may sign and date Part B on the ticket, mail it in and the court will schedule a pre-trial conference.  Tickets should be mailed to the Court prior to your appearance date.

2.  What do I do if I get a suspension notice?

You should immediately contact the court to determine the reason for the suspension.  If the suspension is for failing to pay a fine the payment should be remitted to the Court.  If your fine is paid after your suspension date there is a $70.00 fee to lift your suspension in addition to any fine that may have been assessed.

3.  How can I pay my fine?
