What determines if my ticket is payable or whether I must appear in court?

It depends on what your ticket was issued for and the circumstances surrounding it. If you were involved in an accident you MUST go to court for your ticket, no matter what the charge(s). There are offenses that have to be heard by a judge. Examples of those are DWI, Driving under Suspension, Careless and Reckless and Failure to Stop for a School Bus. If you are issued a ticket for a non-payable fine you will be notified of your court date at the address listed on the ticket. If that address is not correct, please furnish your correct address at traffic@caddoda.com Be sure to include your full name, date of birth, driver’s license number, and ticket number in your email in addition to your new address.

What if I received a ticket for a payable offense, but I don't believe that I am guilty of the offense I am charged with?

You have every right to request a court date for your ticket.  Click here and you can request a court date on your ticket.  Keep in mind that once you request a court date you will not be able to pay the ticket unless you have approval from the Assistant District Attorney prosecuting your case.  If your license was suspended as a result of not having paid your ticket prior to requesting a court date, requesting a court date will not change that status.  Your license will remain suspended until either the ticket is paid or a disposition has been reached in court.
