I was issued a traffic ticket. Where do I go to pay it?

Your summons requires you to appear in person before the Jackson Municipal Court on the date and time indicated at the top of the summons. If you wish to plead guilty and pay your fine and court costs by mail or at Municipal Court Office, PLEASE DO NOT SEND CASH THROUGH THE MAIL. it must be paid before 4 pm the day before your court date. You may also do so by going to the Missouri Courts webpage and select the payments button.  Please allow 10-14 days from the receipt of your ticket for it to be filed with the court and made payable.

Only certain violations may be paid before your court date. You must appear in Court if you were involved in an accident or the offense occurred in a construction zone. The violations and fines that are payable out of court are listed on the Court Handout /envelope you should have received with your summons. If you did not receive this you may call the Municipal Court Clerk at 573-204-0618 to see if the violation is payable out of court. For more information about the Jackson Municipal Court, please visit the Municipal Court page.

IMPORTANT: If the ticket is not paid before your court date and you do not appear in court, a warrant for your arrest may be issued and you may be subject to additional fees.
