Civil Infractions

A civil infraction, such as moving and mechanical violations are handled in the Traffic Division. Misdemeanor (i.e., drunk driving) and felony cases are handled in the Criminal Division.

If you are issued a traffic ticket, you may be subject to fines and points on your driving record.

Information on your citation is important. Please read it thoroughly! The due date of your ticket is 10 days from the date it was written (including weekends). Failure to respond by the due date may result in additional costs, the possible issuance of an arrest warrant and/or suspension of your driver's license.

The following chart is provided for your convenience and lists the most common fines on civil infractions and applies to payments accepted on or before the due date. This chart does not necessarily apply to cases heard in court.

This schedule is subject to change without notice and the Otsego County Judicial System is not responsible for any inaccurate information provided on the chart. If you do not find your specific charge, you may contact the clerk's office at 989-731-0201 (Monday through Friday 8 to 4:30). Any questions regarding assessed points should be directed to the Secretary of State.
