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, https://www.nebraska.gov/courts/citations/.

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.
