Can you not remember if you paid a speeding ticket? Simply look it up through Polk County’s Citation Search page. You can also access all court records and other public documents through the Polk County Official Records Search. More specifics on paying your ticket (such as troubleshooting entry of citation number and DOB) can be found here: “How to Pay a Traffic Ticket Online”.
Be aware that you can pay tickets through that same system. It’s critical to understand that you do have the right not to pay the fine but instead to fight the citation. If so, you’d be taking a smart route that many ticketed drivers fail to take:
- The National Motorists Association has noted that a ticket can raise your insurance rate as much as 30% for a full three years.
- Despite the long-term expense, the NMA has estimated that only about 1 in 20 people contest their citation.
