Vehicle Traffic Stops


  • Police Officers are trained to ask for identification. Providing your documentation will simplify and speed up the process.
  • Traffic stops are a very important law enforcement function, which maintains safety throughout our community.
  • Remain in your vehicle unless the officer advises otherwise. Keep your hands on the steering wheel so the officer can see them.
  • If the stop occurs during darkness, please turn on your dome light so that the officer can see that all is in order.
  • Bright spotlights are used for the safety of all persons involved. They are not meant to intimidate or embarrass you.
  • The officer may issue a ticket. If you feel the reason is unclear, ask for details. If you do not agree with the citation, please do not argue at the scene. All citizens have the right to question their citation before a judge.

Important Note:

Not all traffic violations are required to appear in court.  Read the back of your ticket for all necessary information regarding your given court date.

Allow clerks 5-10 business days to have your ticket entered into the system before calling to find out fine costs.
