If you do not wish to appear in court but wish only to pay the amount of your citation, you may do so before the time of arraignment that is shown on your citation. However, violators 16 years of age or under must appear in court accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
If you are unable to pay the fine and court costs, you may appear before the Judge any Thursday (check in 8:30 a.m.) for information on payment alternatives.
