Payment of all fines, costs, fees, and restitution is due and payable in full immediately upon plea of guilty or a finding of guilty.
If you wish to pay a fine before your scheduled court date, you may do so in most cases. Many summonses are payable in advance of court and, if paid, do not require a court appearance.
By paying the fine, you are pleading guilty to the charged offense. Based upon the payment, a conviction would be entered. If the charge is a violation of the Model Traffic Code, a report of the conviction would be made to the Colorado Motor Vehicle Division and points would be assessed on your driver's history. The number of points for each offense should be indicated on the summons.
If the summons states an amount for the fine and surcharge, payments in advance can be made by mail (by check or money order) or in person at the Municipal Court window during business hours.
