Paying a traffic ticket or parking citation  (civil infractions):

All civil infraction citations are due within 20 days of the date on the citation.  If you fail to pay or request a court appearance within 20 days, you will be subject to late fees and possible suspension of your license. 

Before you come to Court to pay the ticket:
It normally takes 24-48 hours from the time you received the ticket before the court has received a record of the ticket from the police department. Please wait at least 24 hours before coming to court to pay. If you are coming in person to pay during regular business hours, please bring your copy of the ticket with you.

If you would like to admit responsibility and pay your ticket immediately:
Online or by phone, follow the steps below.  For options to contest your citation, you may view those options in the Traffic section of this website.
