Traffic - Fixing a Ticket - May be as easy as making a phone call

  • Offenses - Light out? - Window Tinting - Updating Plates
  • Call Traffic Division Clerk - Phone 812-335-7274 or 812-349-2609
  • Traffic Court - Fridays at 1:30 p.m.

Drivers have up to (5) days to resolve their issue. If you call the same day you receive the ticket, it is unlikely we will have access to the case record to assist you and will have you call back in a day or two to allow the record to be accessible. As long as you call PRIOR to your APPEAR BY DATE and AFTER THE RECORD IS AVAILABLE TO US and provide PROOF you’ve resolved the issue you were cited for within the (5) days, then we should be able to assist you in DISMISSING the ticket. The designated (5) days pertains to the time in which the driver has to address the offense for which they were cited. It does not mean the ticket is to be dismissed within (5) days. 

Please note, if you'd like an extension to pay on your infraction, simply call #812.349.2614 and request an extension PRIOR to your APPEAR BY DATE.
