Traffic Violations

All uniform traffic citations show the court date, in the top left-hand corner of the ticket, as well as the violation.  Violations listed on the Uniform Fine Schedule may be paid in advance of the court date and do not require a court appearance.  For all other violations not listed on the fine schedule a court appearance is required, including traffic violations that involved a vehicle accident.

If your violation is listed on the Uniform Fine Schedule and you wish to plead GUILTY without coming to Court:

  • Obtain a money order in the appropriate amount payable to the City of Ferguson.  Mail the money order prior to the court date.
  • If you choose to pay in person, present the summons and payment at the Court Clerk's office. Cash, money orders, cashiers checks, and credit cards are all acceptable forms of payment.
  • Pay online at or by calling 1-800-444-1187.
