If you have received a citation for a traffic or ordinance violation, one of the first things to do is check the court date and time on the citation. You can appear at the Springfield Municipal court on that date and time or do any of the following options listed below prior to the court date and time. Failure to appear can result in additional fines, fees, suspension of your driving privileges and being sent to collections.
You may want to look into our safety programs when considering your options.
Springfield Municipal Court has several programs that allow drivers to complete educational classes or fix the violation instead of having to pay the presumptive fine for the citation if they are eligible.
There are costs associated with these programs, but they are generally less expensive than the presumptive fine on the ticket.
