Traffic Citations Can Be Paid On-line

Motorists who receive payable traffic citations (tickets with a set fine which can be paid without a court appearance) will now be able to pay their traffic fines on the Internet through the Nebraska Judicial Branch's new on-line payment system.

Through the new ePayment secured payment system, traffic citations can be paid by logging onto the Judicial Branch Web site,

Typical traffic citations that can be paid on-line include: speeding tickets, seat belt violations, driving without current tags, failure to stop at stop sign, and similar offenses of a less serious nature. However, more serious violations still require court appearances, including: driving on a suspended license, driving while under the influence of alcohol, driving an uninsured vehicle, or driving while impaired by controlled dangerous substances. Motorists may not pay their traffic citation on-line if the citation indicates that they must appear in court.

City and municipal parking citations must be paid to the local municipalities, although many cities have their own on-line ePayment programs.

View and Pay Property and Motor Vehicle Taxes On-Line

Seward County offers on-line tax payments to free up time and eliminate the considerable cost of late fees. On-line bill pay is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
