Traffic Court

Essential information is contained on both sides of your traffic ticket - read it carefully to determine what type of violation you are charged with, how you can respond to the ticket, whether a court hearing is required, and what your rights are, among other things. The penalties you may receive and what you must do to resolve your traffic case vary depending on whether yours was a civil traffic infraction or criminal traffic case.

The program enables violators with a suspended driver’s license to be removed from collection agencies and pay off fines through community service, reducing the amount of court costs to be paid, in order to obtain a valid driver’s license.
