BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Traffic tickets are a pain, especially if you work a 9-5 job. The Baton Rouge City Court is making it a little easier to get those tickets resolved with a Saturday Traffic Court day.
On Saturday, Oct. 8, people who have unresolved traffic tickets can go to City court between 8 a.m. and noon. You can:
- Pay your traffic ticket (by pleading guilty or no contest.) You can pay it in whole, or in part.
- Reset your court date (even if your court date has already passed).
- Have your case heard and adjudicated (City Court Only) by pleading not guilty.
- Get assistance with your traffic ticket from the Traffic Court Judge, prosecutors, and public defenders. (District Court only.)
- Have a traffic bench warrant recalled
If your ticket was given by Baton Rouge City Police, you should go to Baton Rouge City Court, 233 St. Louis Street. Make sure you leave your cell phone in your car.
Tickets written by other law enforcement agencies, such as EBR Sheriff's Department, Louisiana State Police, LSU Police, or Southern University Police are handled by the 19th Judicial District Court, 300 North Blvd. Cell phones are allowed into the 19th JDC courthouse.
