I received a traffic ticket, what steps do 
I need to take?

  • All traffic tickets are processed through Tiffin Municipal Court.
      
    If you have received a ticket and have been cited in to Tiffin Municipal Court you can opt to take one of two routes...
     

  • First check the bottom and back of your citation and make sure the "APPEARANCE REQUIRED" box is not checked by the officer. If it is YOU MUST APPEAR IN COURT.

    If the box is not checked then you may choose to do either of the following:
     

  • If you feel that you DID commit the offense that you are charged with on the citation, you may find the amount on the back of your citation copy or you can simply call the court (419-448-5411) to find out what the fine for that violation is and mail the fine along with the signed guilty waiver that is on the back of your copy of the ticket to the court.
       
     

  • If you feel that you DID NOT commit the offense that you are being charged with, on the bottom of your citation, the officer wrote in a date and time where you can appear at Tiffin Municipal Court. At that time you may enter a plea of Not Guilty to the offense and have the matter set for a Pre-Trial.
     

  • ***IF YOU DO NOT CALL THE COURT BEFORE YOUR SCHEDULED COURT DATE OR DO NOT APPEAR ON YOUR SCHEDULED COURT DATE (depending on the option you chose above), A WARRANT WILL BE ISSUED FOR YOUR ARREST.***
