The court receives payments for traffic, criminal citations and complaints, parking citations, jury fees, court and warrant costs, and restitution.  Information regarding payment options is printed on the back of the citation.  

A traffic or criminal citation may be resolved by a written plea of guilty and /or payment by mail if the officer has marked a payable amount on the front of the citation.  The court must receive all payments made before the court date indicated on the citation.  If there is no payment amount indicated, the citation is not payable and a court appearance is required.

You give up all legal rights to which are are entitled by paying the fine.  Payment is a plea of guilty to the offense(s) charged.  The Division of Motor Vehicle may assess penalty points against your driving record.  If you do not wish to plead guilty, you should appear on your court date. 

Court costs of $20 are applied to all payments made on or after the court date.  Additional costs or fees may be assessed if the bank returns a check, or if you fail to appear in court.  Failure to appear in court may result in a warrant and you could be taken into custody at any time.  An outstanding warrant may result in the cancellation of your Colorado Driver’s License.
