What must I do if I receive an infraction?

Start by reading the entire back side of your notice of infraction (ticket). If you follow the instructions you can’t go wrong! You should note that you must respond within fifteen days of the date that the ticket was issued. An infraction is not a crime, but failure to respond can result in the suspension of your driver’s license and you may be charged with a misdemeanor.

You can respond by either mailing the green ticket to the Court or bring it in person to the Clerk’s office. Select one of the boxes on the back of the ticket and verify your address. If you select box one, you are electing to pay the amount of the penalty as shown on the front of the ticket. If you need to have the ticket cleared quickly, please pay by cash or money order. A personal check will not close your case and adjudicate the ticket until the check has cleared (approximately 14 days).
