How do I pay my traffic ticket?

To pay the fine in full, simply enter a plea of guilty or no contest on the reverse side of the citation and sign where requested. If you are mailing your plea and payment, it must be paid by or postmarked by the court date/due date indicated on the front of the citation above your signature.

If you are unable to pay the fine you may request a payment plan. This request is typically made before the Judge and established by the clerk. If you need more than 30 days to pay the balance, the State requires the Court to add an additional $25 to the total amount due. You must make the payments as indicated on the payment agreement, failure to do so will result in the issuance of a warrant for your arrest.
