Can I just pay my ticket and not go to court California?
In many cases, you can pay your traffic ticket without going to court in California. The process is commonly known as "traffic school bail" or "bail forfeiture." It's a straightforward way to resolve the ticket without having to appear in court.
Here's how the process generally works:
- Check Eligibility: You should first investigate whether your violation qualifies for "bail forfeiture." Some violations, such as more serious offenses, may require a mandatory court appearance, so simply paying the fine is not an option.
- Review the Ticket: Your traffic ticket will have information on how to pay the fine. It will include the amount of the fine, the due date, and the methods of payment accepted (e.g., online, by mail, in person).
- Payment Options: Many counties offer an online payment system where you can enter your citation number and pay the fine using a credit or debit card. You can send a check or money order along with the ticket to the address provided on the ticket. Some counties allow you to pay in person at the court or a designated payment location.
- Keep Records: It's essential to keep records of your payment, including receipts or confirmation numbers, in case there are any discrepancies later on.
- Traffic School: Taking traffic school might prevent the violation from appearing on your driving record and resulting in higher insurance rates if you're eligible. The purpose of traffic school is to educate you about safe driving practices. The traffic school will cost you in addition to the ticket fine, but the violation might not appear on your record after you complete it.
- Verify Closure: After making the payment, you should verify with the court that your case has been closed. This can help ensure that there are no misunderstandings or potential issues in the future.
Remember, it's crucial to follow the instructions provided on the ticket and on the official court website to ensure you are following the correct procedures for paying your ticket. If you have any doubts or concerns, you might want to consider consulting with a San Bernardino traffic ticket lawyer for clarification.
