Pay a Traffic Citation
Not all citations require the defendant to appear in court. Depending upon the charges, many citations may be paid on or before the court date in lieu of appearing in traffic court. Citations handled this way are treated as guilty pleas.
Citations paid in lieu of appearance may be done so by utilizing our website, chambleega.gov; by calling 678-359-2783; by mailing a money order; and/or physically appearing at the Chamblee Municipal Court Monday-Thursday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. at the Court Clerks window. Payments are due by the summons date and time listed on the citation. If you are mailing a money order, please provide your citation number or your date of birth.
Payments for citations may also be made by mail, but the payment must be received by the court on or before the court date to prevent a contempt of court charge. A copy of the citation(s) must be included with the mailed payment to ensure the payment is applied to the correct case. The mailing address for the court is:
If the bond amount is not listed on the ticket, you may call the court clerk's office at (770) 986-5004 to determine the bond amount before court.

If you received a citation for no proof of insurance and you believe that you in fact had insurance, you must provide a letter from your insurance company clearly stating that the vehicle you were driving had valid insurance coverage at the actual time you were driving it and received the citation. The policy itself, insurance cards, binder, etc. will not suffice as proof that the coverage was in effect and not lapsed or cancelled at the time.
