Q: Received a ticket for going around a road closed sign. However, there was traffic coming from the opposite direction!
Can I get supervision without going to court and just pay the fine?
A: Certain tickets will give you the option of requesting court supervision without the need to attend court. Usually, this will require the completion of a traffic safety school course. Read the ticket carefully, it should explain your options. If this is not an option, a court appearance would be required to secure court supervision.
A: If the Ticket is marked as "No Court Appearance Required", you could mail it in and request Court Supervision but you will have to complete Traffic Safety School. If the Ticket is marked as "Court Appearance Required", you will have to appear in court and request Court Supervision, but you will likely not have to complete Traffic Safety School. If you are concerned, you could always hire an attorney to assist you with this matter.
