What To Do With A Ticket

We issue three different types of tickets; Traffic Citation | Mechanical or Equipment | Parking.

Please look at the follow examples to see how to take care of them.

Traffic Citation

This is an example of a traffic citation.  These can only be handled through the traffic court specified at the bottom of the form.  If the violation(s) included a mechanical violation, which has been corrected, it may be brought to our station for verification prior to clearing it with the court.  We do not charge for this verification and no appointment is required.

Mechanical or Equipment Ticket

This is an example of a mechanical or equipment ticket.  The discrepancy must be corrected and verified by a law enforcement officer before being returned to the issuing station.  The verified ticket MUST be returned to the issuing station within 30 days.  If this is not completed within the 30 days, the matter will be referred to the local court for processing.  The issuing station's address is stamped on the back of the ticket. 



Parking Ticket

This is an example of a "parking" ticket.  All correspondence or payment of fines must be conducted with the Parking Citation Center.
