Traffic

Because of the many variables traffic cases may include, the Self-Represented Litigation Committee of the Judicial Branch cannot provide forms for all possible situations in this process. 

These instructions and forms were developed to assist people, especially those looking to handle their own legal matters, to better understand legal processes. However, anyone thinking of handling their own case is urged to talk to a lawyer or explore resources available in the Nebraska Online Legal Self-Help Center

If the "waiver allowed" box at the bottom of the ticket has been marked, you are allowed to waive your rights, plead guilty, and pay the established fine and costs for this offense without appearing in court. You may, if you wish, appear in court and contest this matter.

 

To waive your rights and pay your citation:

ELECTRONICALLY, go to:  http://www.nebraska.gov/demo/CitationPayment/two.html.

BY MAIL, download the Waiver and Plea of Guilty form and mail it with your payment to the appropriate county court. For specific County Court contact information please click here.

WAIVER IS NOT ALLOWED
If a waiver is not allowed or if you were cited for multiple offenses, and one of the offenses requires a court appearance, you will need to appear in court at the time and date specified on the citation to answer to all the offenses.

NOTICE OF SUSPENSION
If a notice of suspension has been received from the Department of Motor Vehicles, payment online will not prevent suspension of the license if the payment has not been posted to the court before the suspension date. To reinstate a driver's license, check a driver’s history or points assessed prior to payment of a citation, go to the Department of Motor Vehicles' website: www.clickdmv.ne.gov

WARRANTS
If paying a ticket for which a warrant has been issued, be aware that the warrant will remain active until it is recalled by the court. To avoid arrest, payment should be made in cash to the court during office hours or the county sheriff's office during hours when the court is not open.


Instructions and forms on this website are generally provided as a public service by the Self-Represented Litigation Committee of the Judicial Branch.

NOTE: THE SUPREME COURT DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND FORMS WILL BE APPROPRIATE IN EVERY CASE. ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE REGARDING THE USE OF THE INSTRUCTIONS AND FORMS SHOULD BE DIRECTED TO A LAWYER.
