Fines and Court Costs


The amount of fine assessed by the Court is affected by the facts and circumstances of the case. Mitigating circumstances may lower the fine even if you are guilty; however, aggravating circumstances may increase the fine. In no case may a fine exceed $500 for most traffic violations and up to $2,500 for City ordinance violations involving driving under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs. All fines are deposited in the General Treasury of the City.

Court Costs

If you are found guilty of an offense, court costs will be added to the initial fine.
