Traffic - General Information and Usage
Traffic citations must first be received from the issuing law enforcement agency and entered into the Traffic system before you can view / pay your citation online. Most citations are not received by the Court from the issuing law enforcement agency for up to 30 days from the date of the ticket (violation date). Please allow a minimum of 30 days from the date your ticket was issued for processing.
If your citation was issued within the last 90 days, and you do not find it on this system, you are still responsible for appearing at the court on or before the date listed at the bottom of your citation. Failure to do so can result in additional penalties and suspension of your driving privilege.
If you are experiencing problems when using the system, please call (916) 875-7800 during normal business hours. Please note, due to staffing shortages, telephone wait times may exceed 30 minutes.
