Traffic infractions in Charlottesville

Traffic infractions convictions result in fines, which cannot exceed $250. However, there are some exceptions for infractions which are considered more serious. These infractions may result in a fine up to $500. If you fail to appear for your court date, and the offense is one where the judge will try the case in your absence, a $35 fee will be added.


Most traffic infractions are pre-payable with the court. However, criminal traffic charges such as reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, or driving without being licensed to drive are not pre-payable by statute. 


The defendant has an absolute right to appeal any conviction within 10 calendar days of the order. Your case will subsequently be tried in the Charlottesville Circuit Court.  If you wish to appeal your conviction, contact the clerk's office.
