Municipal Court DOES NOT send payment reminders. It is your responsibility to send payments to the Court by the due date. Failure to pay a citation will result in a suspension of your driving privileges with a fee of $25.00 added to every applicable citation and may be sent to a collection agency.
As per Judge's order; if a citation is in the suspension status, payment in full is REQUIRED in order to remove the suspension from your driving record. When the citation is paid in full, a clearance letter is sent to the State of Oregon DMV to clear the suspension. Court processing time is 1 week and may take up to 2 weeks for your driving record to reflect the clearance of suspension. Municipal Court does not provide clearance letters to individuals and only reports to the State of Oregon DMV.
Failure to pay on criminal and traffic cases may result in a WARRANT for your arrest per ORS 161.685. Any unpaid fines may be sent to a collection agency adding additional collection fees per ORS 137.118 and/or a Show Cause Hearing may be set which will require your personal appearance in front of a Judge. If you fail to appear for a Show Cause Hearing a WARRANT may be issued for your arrest per ORS 153.992.
