Steps After Receiving a Traffic Ticket

First of all, read the instructions on the ticket. It explains your options in detail. Be aware the "court date" on the front of the ticket is not the date you should appear in court. This is a deadline (usually 14 days) for either paying the ticket, or notifying the court of your intention to contest the charge. If you choose to contest it, the court will set up a hearing date and notify you by mail.

Pay your ticket using a Visa or MasterCard online
