Where do I pay a traffic ticket?

The court address will be marked on the bottom of the citation. At the bottom of the traffic ticket you received, a court date will be marked. By signing the ticket, you are not admitting guilt, but you are promising to appear in court on or before that date.

The court will usually send a courtesy notice to the address on the citation. If you do not receive a courtesy notice, you would have to go in person to the assigned court and locate their traffic window. The court clerk will provide you with the bail amount (how much to pay) and traffic school information. If you have attended traffic school within 18 months of the violation, you will not qualify for traffic school.
