Here’s some welcome news for those needing to pay North Carolina traffic tickets. The North Carolina Administrator of the Courts has now implemented a system where traffic tickets and other court fines may be paid online. The North Carolina court system uses a vendor to handle these payments and the vendor charges an additional fee for processing these electronic payments.
The system not only provides the convenience to citizens of being able to pay their tickets online and not hassle with either mailing their bills or, much worse, going to the courthouse to pay, but there are also other benefits as well. There should be a quicker disposition of caes due to automatic updates and the system should also help decrease the numbers of people at the courthouse.
To pay online, one must have the citation number. The citation number may be found either on the ticket itself, or by using the search feature on the court site to find the citation number.
It is encouraging to see more electronic access from North Carolina. Now that citations may be paid online, one can hope that court records may soon be available online as well. To see what other North Carolina court resources exist, please visit CourtReference’s North Carolina court guide.
