If the deposit for such account has previously been waived, the account will be charged to bring the deposits to the current amount required.

Can I go to driving school or otherwise keep a ticket off my record?

Featured in Pay for Traffic Citation, City of Auburn

Driving school is typically at the discretion of the Court. However, if this is your first moving violation within the City of Auburn, the Court will generally allow you to complete an in-person traffic safety program in the City of Auburn.  Upon completion, the citation will be 'Nol Prossed'. 

The Court reserves the right to deny your application for the program based upon your statewide or nationwide driving history, even if it is a first offense in this jurisdiction. Additionally, individuals with CDL's are not eligible for this program.  If you are eligible for and interested in attending our Traffic Safety Program, please contact a Magistrate at least ten (10) days before your scheduled court date.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell.

Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who get COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness.

People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention.
