Pay Red Light Fines


Jump to:



When a vehicle runs a red light, cameras record the vehicle and its license plate, then Law enforcement officials review the evidence and decide whether a citation is warranted. If they decide the vehicle ran the red light, Notices of Warning or Violation are mailed to the vehicle's registered owner. Here you can learn how to pay those violations.


There is a $158 statutory penalty.


You have 60 days following the notification to proceed with one of three actions:
  1. Pay the penalty
    • Use one of the three methods below to pay the fine
    • Instructions for payment are also on the back of the notice
    • You can't pay fines in person at County facilities
  2. Submit an affidavit transferring liability or establishing one of the other statutory exemptions from liability
  3. Request a hearing before a local hearing officer appointed by the local government
If you do not take one of the above within the 60-day Notice of Violation period, a Uniform Traffic Citation (UTC) will be issued within 30 days of the expiration of the 60-day period. UTC's are enforced in the County court.
