Can I just pay my ticket and not come to Court?

Sometimes you can pay money and not appear. The money you pay is called a bond. The court will forfeit your bond to pay the fines and fees. A bond forfeiture is a conviction. You have 90 days from the date of forfeiture to appear and contest your charges.

If you don't know the bond amount or if you have to come to court, call the court clerks.
