Trucking Fines & Costs
The schedule below shows the fine and costs for each charge. You must pay the total amount for the first ticket and only the fine amount for any additional ticket received. Costs are set by the State Legislature and must be paid whether or not you appear in court (unless your case is dismissed or you are found not guilty).
The schedule below shows the fine and court costs if you are eligible to pay before your court date. You must pay the total listed. No personal checks! Failure to pay on time may result in additional fees, and or the suspension of your drivers license. See Payment Options for acceptable methods of payment, including instructions for paying by credit card.
