JUSTICE OF THE PEACE COURT ACCEPTS PAYMENT OF TRAFFIC TICKETS ONLINE
Paying a traffic ticket has become more convenient with the Justice of the Peace Court’s recent introduction of online ticket payment. Available for traffic tickets issued on or after July 1, 2009, the new web-based payment option can be accessed through the State of Delaware and the Justice of the Peace Court’s home page (https://pubsrv.deljis.delaware.
gov/epayment/). In order to pay a traffic ticket online, an individual will need the ticket number or case number and the last name of the person to whom the ticket was issued. There may be a delay in the ability to pay tickets that are hand written and not computer generated. Payment may be made by either credit card (Visa, Mastercard, or Discover) or authorized bank account withdrawal. The new payment option was developed through the technical efforts of DELJIS. Expansion of the online ticket payment program to provide deferred payment options for cases which have already been heard is anticipated in August 2009.
Chief Magistrate Alan G. Davis stated:
“We are very pleased to be able to provide web-based payment services to individuals with this type of interaction with the Justice of the Peace Court. In recent years we have received many requests for e-payment services; in fact, Justice of the Peace Court users were so eager for this service that, after the e-payment option became available at 12:01 am on July 1st, there were 3 users before 8 am that morning. While several jurisdictions already provide e-payment of traffic tickets, the ability to pay on existing payment agreements for cases already adjudicated is, to our understanding, if not unique, at least unusual. Not only does this service benefit those we serve, but provides time and cost savings for the Court.”
