What you should know about traffic citations
PROOF OF INSURANCE
You are required by law to provide proof of insurance. If you did not provide this information to the officer, you are required to provide it at your Court appearance or to the Clerk of Courts office when paying your ticket in person or enclosing a copy of your insurance when paying by mail. Failure to provide proof that you are insured will result in your operator's license being suspended for a minimum of ninety (90) days through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
If you are not required to appear in court or have any questions regarding your citation, you should contact the Clerk of Courts office the following business day to obtain the amount you owe. This information is not provided by the Police Officer.
The amount you owe is due two days before the Court date noted at the bottom of your ticket. If paying by mail, please sign the back of the ticket and enclose it with your payment. Checks or Money orders are made payable to the City of Brook Park. If you fail to pay your fine before your Court date, or failure to appear in Court as scheduled, a warrant for your arrest will be issued and your license will be canceled through the BMV.
