Only money orders are accepted. No cash, personal checks or credit cards can be used for payments by mail. Please make your money order payable to the City of New Orleans.
Please include your ticket number, name, current address and day time telephone number on your money order. You must postmark your letter on or before the appearance date written on the front of your traffic ticket. If your payment is postmarked after that date, you must include an additional $100.00 late fee in order for your case to be completed and changed in status from “open” to “closed.” “Open” cases that are delinquent are subject to additional fines and fees and the motorist’s driver’s license is subject to immediate suspension. Also, arrest attachments can be issued for motorists with “open” cases that are delinquent. Note: If your driver’s license was confiscated, it will be mailed to you after full payment for your traffic citation, including late fees, has been received by Traffic Court.
