Failure to Appear or Pay Fines


 Failure to respond in a timely manner to a citation or failure to appear in court for a scheduled hearing will result in a finding that the infraction was committed and imposition of the fine amount listed on the citation without a further hearing. Failure to pay fines, or failure to make a scheduled payment pursuant to a court-ordered payment schedule, will result in an additional penalty of $52, and - in a traffic case - suspension of your driver's license.

Additionally, your unpaid debt will be referred to a collection agency and may adversely affect your credit rating.
