INFRACTIONS

INFRACTIONS: You may mail in your citation with the fine amount at the above address, pay online at http://courtpay.idaho.gov, or come to the Magistrate Court. To enter a not guilty plea, come to the window at Magistrate Court at the courthouse or send in the citation with the denial box checked on the back of the citation. Your case will then be set for a pretrial conference where you will have to appear and meet with the prosecuting attorney. YOU DO NOT ATTEND TRAFFIC COURT.

NO INSURANCE TICKET:
If you had insurance coverage at the time that you received the citation, but did not have your "Certificate of Liability" in your car, you may bring the original "Certificate of Liability" to the Magistrate Court office on or before your scheduled appearance date for a dismissal of the charge. We will NOT ACCEPT COPIES of ANY insurance information, but will accept a fax from your insurance company faxed to (208) 782-3167. If you plead guilty or are found guilty, you may be subject to the Automatic License Suspension Law administered by the Department of Transporation Driver's Services.
