HelloThis is Samuel. That is a good suggestion by the clerk of the court. You will need to provide evidence of your indigence. For instance, if you own a home they would not consider you indigent. But if you are unemployed, do not have any bank accounts or other assets, then that is possible.
And so you could write a letter that says something likeI am requesting this honorable court to forgive my traffic fines because I am indigent. I have no job, no bank accounts or other assets and I do not expect to be having any financial windfalls in the future.
