A: We’re these fines imposed by a judge after you requested a trial date and appeared for trial? If so, and if 90 days or less has passed since the trial date, you can file a motion with the court for reconsideration and reduction of the fines

A: The MVA passed new laws that allow you to enter into a payment plan for any unpaid traffic tickets. Contact the court for each case and enter into a payment plan. In addition, if you have not been to court for the tickets, file a motion or send a letter to the court asking them to set the tickets in for trial. This will lift any related suspension if the motion is granted.
