If you have received a traffic ticket for a non-criminal traffic violation you have 30 days from the issue date on the ticket to select one of the following options:
- Pay the ticket and get points,
- Attend traffic school and pay the fine, or
- Request a hearing and fight back
Failure to satisfy your ticket within 30 days of the issue date by selecting one of the options above will result in late fees and license suspension.
- 12 points within 12 months results in a 30 day suspension.
- 18 points within 18 months results in a 3 month suspension.
- 24 points within 36 months results in a 1 year suspension.
Some traffic offenses require your appearance in court, unless you are represented by an attorney.
Red Light Cameras
If you are the registered owner of the vehicle, a "Notice of Violation" for $158 will be mailed to the address listed on your license within 30 days after the alleged violation.
Locate the Notice Number and PIN, and login to the site indicated on the notice. If the video/photos show your vehicle crossing the intersection, making a left on red, or making a right turn when there’s a sign prohibiting it, you are probably better off paying the $158 fine and not contesting it.
Unlike a traffic ticket, paying a Notice of Violation will not result in points on your license nor will your insurance premiums increase.

If you fail to pay the initial Notice of Violation by the due date, a $277 Uniform Traffic Citation will be issued to you by certified mail. At this point, you can no longer pay the Notice of Violation and we suggest you not pay the $277 fine, as paying it will result in a conviction on your driving record.
