Traffic/Criminal Fines: If you are trying to determine the amount of a traffic ticket or similar fine, see the Uniform Bail and Penalty Schedules on the State Court website , and the local traffic bail schedule and local criminal bail schedule on this website. Note that the schedules will not reflect the total amount owed, since many state-mandated assessments and fees are added to certain misdemeanor and infraction violations, substantially increasing the final sum that must be paid.
