Ticket Information

Traffic Offenses & Ordinance Violations
If you wish to Admit or plead No Contest to your ticket(s) and pay without coming to Court, you may do so for certain offenses. The schedule on the reverse shows the total fine and court costs for eligible ordinance and infraction violations. Once a citation is issued, Court costs are assessed.

The amount of the cost is set by the legislature and must be paid whether you appear in Court or not (unless you are found not guilty or your case is dismissed). To Admit or plead No Contest to your ticket, please sign the back of your copy of the ticket(s) and mail to the Court, together with your payment, before your scheduled Court appearance. Admitting or pleading No Contest to the charge(s) will result in an entry of judgment against you. All judgments will be certified to the Commissioner of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles or the state where you received a license to drive.
