Traffic Ticket

1. If the officer who issues the ticket also gives you a Court Diversion Envelope, you have three options:

  • You may plead guilty and pay the citation, either by mail or in person at the courthouse.
  • You may plead guilty and attend traffic safety school, if eligible (it's explained on the envelope). If you pass the class, the conviction will be considered a supervision and not be entered on your driving record at the Secretary of State's Office. If you fail the class or do not attend the class, then a conviction will be entered upon your record.
  • You may also mail the envelope in to request a court date to contest the ticket.

2. If the officer who issues the ticket assigns a court date and the MUST APPEAR box is also checked, then you must appear on the date and time assigned to you. The officer has no discretion on these violations as this is mandated by law.

3. If the officer who issues the ticket assigns a court date and the MUST APPEAR box is NOT checked, then you may either appear on the date assigned or pay the ticket at the courthouse prior to the assigned court date.
