Pay a red light ticket

A red light camera ticket is not a ticket you receive as part of a traffic stop. It’s a Notice of Violation sent to you in the mail. There are several payment options available to pay a recent or past due red light ticket.

Paying a recent ticket

If you’re not disputing your ticket and the ticket due date hasn’t yet passed, you can use these payment methods. Check your notice number (starting with RL or 536) to find the correct instructions for your payment method.
