Traffic Court

A traffic citation has been issued for you to appear before the Limestone County District Court. If you fail to pay or otherwise dispose of your case prior to the court date and fail to appear on your court date, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.  Additionally, your driver’s license may be suspended by the Department of Public Safety, the fine may be increased, and any bond posted may be forfeited. The court date on your copy of the ticket is NOT A TRIAL DATE; if you desire to plead NOT GUILTY and want a TRIAL, you must appear in court on your court date to request a TRIAL. Should you have any questions concerning a case of this type or need filing information, please contact the division specialist at 256.233.6406.

If you wish to avoid a court appearance and enter a plea of guilty, sign the Defendant’s plea of guilty on the back of your copy of the ticket and attach your money order or cashier’s check for the amount of fine and costs indicated and mail it to:

Limestone District Court Clerk

200 Washington Street, West

Athens, AL 35611

If it does not, a warrant may be issued for your arrest and your driver’s license may be suspended by the Department of Public Safety, all without further notice to you.
