Waivers

Non-Waiverable Offenses (You must appear in court)

  • If you are cited for speed of 36 mph or more in a school zone your ticket is not waiverable. You must appear on the court date specified on your ticket.
  • A speed violation in excess of the speed limit by more than 30 mph requires your appearance.
  • A speed violation of 90 mph or more requires your appearance.
  • A 3rd offense speed violation within the last 12 months requires your appearance.

Waiverable Offenses (You can pay instead of appearing in court)

  • If you are cited for speed of 35 mph or less in a school zone the total amount due is $123.00.
  • If your citation indicates that this is your second offense for speed within the last 12 months the total amount due is $148.00.
  • To determine the amount of your fines & costs for a first offense speeding violation within the last 12 months that is 80 mph or less, the fine is calculated at $2.00 for every mile over the speed limit plus $73.00 court costs. Example: if you were traveling at 70mph in a 55 mph zone your fine & costs would equal $103.00.
  • 70 – 55 = 15 X  $2.00 = $30.00 + $73.00  = $103.00.
  • Appearance for a speeding offense which does not come within the above criteria but exceeds 80 mph may be waived in the amount of $223.00.
