Paying for Tickets

How much time do I have to pay for my ticket and what about payment extensions?

IMAGE Keep Calm

Pursuant to local administrative order, the payment due date for your civil traffic ticket (citation) has been set at 60 calendar days from the date it was issued by the officer. No further extension can be granted without court approval.

*NOTE: All credit card transactions are charged a 3.5% transaction fee. Security protocols require the correct credit card billing zip code. If an incorrect billing zip code is provided, the charge will not process and a temporary hold is placed on the funds by the credit card processor. Temporary holds can take 3 to 5 business days before the funds are released back to the cardholder. Please verify your credit card billing zip code before paying with a credit card online or by phone.)
