How to Read Your Citation


I lost my ticket. What do I do?

Depending on where a person was pulled over, who issued the ticket, and the severity of the violation decides who a person would contact for their ticket information. For instance, if a person in Flagstaff was pulled over for running a stop sign downtown by an officer of the Flagstaff PD, they would contact the Flagstaff Municipal Court for their traffic ticket information. The majority of traffic violations are handled by municipal and justice courts in Arizona, with more severe criminal violations being heard at superior court locations. A person may have to contact more than one location until they find their ticket information. When contacting a courthouse, please have the following information available:

  1. Date of the citation
  2. Name on the ticket
  3. Driver's license number
