Chicago speeding tickets-new online option.
If you’ve been issued a Cook County speeding ticket or other traffic ticket, you can now pay or request a court hearing online.
Previously, anyone who received a speeding ticket or similar violation would have to either deal with payment or scheduling via mail or in person at one of the Clerk’s district locations.
All such services are a welcome convenience. Individuals can now respond to their traffic violations without worry about whether anything sent by mail was received and/or properly processed and without having to come in person and wait on line to perform a simple transaction.
A couple of things to note. First, the Clerk does charge a $5 fee per ticket for the convenience of using this website to pay your violations this way. In addition, you must be 18 years or older. Finally, it must be a “Court Diversion” ticket (one where a personal appearance is not required).
The website handles the following violations:
- Failure to wear a seat belt
- U-turn in intersection
- Failure to stop at a stop sign
- Disobey turn signal indicator
- Failure to yield to pedestrian in crosswalk
- Improper right turn
- Turn on red prohibited
