Fines

Overview

When the judgment has been announced by the Court, you will be directed to the seats in the front of the Courtroom, and then escorted by the Bailiff to the Clerks office where fines are paid.

There is no provision for paying fines in installments without specific court approval. If it is necessary for you to seek financial assistance, you will be extended the courtesy of a phone call.

Fines are not imposed in an effort to raise money, but to remind drivers of the hazards of improper driving. Your legislators are the lawmakers and they have adopted the fine system. Neither the Magistrate, the Police Officer, or the Clerk make the laws, nor do they receive any part of the fine. All fines and costs are paid over to the City Treasury.
