Traffic Citation Process

If you wish to waive:

Waivers may be made in person before the clerk or magistrate in the county where the case is pending, to the clerk of that county by mail, or online at www.payNCticket.org

If you wish to contest:

You have been scheduled for an administrative session of court where you will have an opportunity to speak with the District Attorney in an effort to resolve your case without a trial.  This is an informal session of court, so neither the officer nor a judge will be present.
