How to Pay a Traffic Ticket in Utah
Citations or traffic tickets are issued in the State of Utah for various violations of traffic law. You must respond to a citation, usually by paying a fine or appearing in court, or else a warrant may be issued for your arrest and your driving license may be suspended.
If you wish to dispute the citation, you must appear in court personally on the scheduled date, and enter a "not guilty" plea. Appearing in court gives you an opportunity to fight the traffic ticket in front of a judge or jury, and most people prefer to hire a traffic ticket lawyer to defend them in court. For more information on how to dispute a traffic ticket in Utah, see our general section on Traffic Tickets and Violations.
PAYING A TRAFFIC TICKET - WHAT IT MEANS
When you pay a ticket, you are essentially pleading guilty to a traffic offense. Motorists should be aware that receiving and paying a traffic citation could result in higher car insurance rates and points on your driving record. Your license may be suspended if you accumulate too many points on your driving record.
HOW TO PAY THE FINE
If you decide to plead guilty to a traffic violation, there are several ways to pay the ticket. Generally, the back of the citation will clearly indicate the deadlines and options for answering the ticket. Usually, you must act within fourteen days of receiving a traffic ticket to avoid additional fines and possible suspension of your license.
- Pay by mail. Read the instructions on the back of the ticket carefully, then check the "Guilty" box and sign the ticket. Enclose a check or money order for the payment. Tickets usually give only the code number of the violation, but you will receive a courtesy bail notice from the court, which will have the exact amount of the fine, or you can look it up on State of Utah Uniform Fine/Bail Forfeiture Schedule. Mail your payment to the court where your ticket is answerable. The name and location of the court is usually given on the ticket. Some courts allow you to pay by credit card using the credit card payment authorization form. Be sure to retain a copy of the citation for your personal records.
- Pay in person. You can pay your traffic tickets at the court where your ticket is answerable. Bring the citation with you, along with cash, check, money order, or credit/debit card.
