If I have an outstanding ticket (Rear-ended a vehicle) from last year how do I resolve the matter; I will pay the fine and other costs. Can I do this online? Pay the fine and be within the law ? The ticket was issued in Illinois 10/10. I have no other outstanding tickets nor have I been issued a traffic citation in many years (to the best of my knowledge and memory).What steps can I take to pay online without having to appear in court?

,How long will this take? I was under the impression this would be completed.
What was your court date for the ticket?
,My court date was December 2010.
That is what I thought and also why you did not get an immediate answer. When we give customers bad news, they usually give the expert a negative rating that has an impact against us with JA. So the experts do not anser the "bad news" questions.I am a nationally recognized traffic law expert. Unfortunatley you will not be able to pay the fine online. When you did not pay or appear on your court date you were found guilty and most likely you also have a failure to appear and a bench warrant has been issued for your arrest. You may be able to retain a traffic attorney and he may be able to get the warrant lifted without you having to appear or you can call the clerk of court and schedule a court date. Probably your license is also suspended and if you are stopped you can expect to go to jail and for your vehicle to be impounded. Therefore, you do need to clear this up as soon as possible. Again sorry for the bad news but it simply is what it is, I can't change the law or the facts. Thanks for using JA and good luck.
