Traffic Cases

Citations

A citation is a charging document, informing you that you have been charged with an offense by Lehi City.

If you have received a traffic citation for a violation that does not require a court appearance, call (385) 201-1090 to pay the fine amount. If you wish to contest the charge or your violation requires a court appearance, contact the court to schedule a court date.

State law mandates that a defendant must contact the court no less than 5 or more than 14 days after receiving the citation. If you fail to contact the court, a late fee will be added to your fine, a warrant may be issued for your arrest, and your license may be suspended until you appear in court.

  • Read, print, sign and submit the Plea in Abeyance Agreement to the court. The agreement is available to print under the Court Forms link.
  • Pay a non-refundable fee of $25 plus the citation amount.

Defendants are given 45 days from receipt of the Plea in Abeyance Agreement to:

  • Sign up for traffic school and pay the $65 traffic school fee.
  • Complete the 3 hour course. You may log in and out as often as necessary to complete the course.
  • Submit the traffic school completion certificate to the court.

No Insurance / Driver’s License Cases:

If you did have insurance or a valid driver’s license at the time of the citation, it may constitute a defense to that charge.  You will need to schedule a hearing to talk to the judge, and bring proof of valid insurance/license with you.  If you have obtained insurance, or reinstated your license after receiving the citation, but prior to your court hearing, this does not constitute a defense to the charge.  However, the judge will reduce your fine.

For proof of insurance the court requires more than just your insurance certificate.  You will need to get a letter from your insurance agent, on company letterhead, indicating that you have insurance, and the effective dates of the policy.
