What You Should Know About Traffic Citations

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 card when paying by mail. You may also fax a copy or have your insurance company fax a copy to 216-433-4183. The date your citation was issued must be covered on the card you submit. Failure to provide proof that you are insured on the date you were issued the citation will result in your operator’s license being suspended for a minimum of ninety (90) days through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

The amount you owe (if waiverable) is due no later than 4:00 pm on the day 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, you must appear in court. Your fine is only waiverable if paid by 4pm the day before your original court date. If you fail to appear in Court as scheduled, a warrant for your arrest will be issued and your license will be canceled through the BMV.
