Municipal Court



Consequences of Ignoring a Citation

Failure to complete 1 of the 4 options shown on or before the response date on the front of this citation will result in:
  • A warrant being issued for your arrest, at which time the fine amount will be the maximum allowed by law plus court costs and fees.
  • A request to the Texas Department of Public Safety for the denial of driver license renewal.
  • If a warrant for your arrest is issued, you will be subject to arrest at your home, place of business, or wherever you may be found.
A telephone call does not constitute a response. Inability to pay this fine is not an excuse for failure to answer.


Juveniles (ages 10-16) must appear in person with a parent or legal guardian for a court hearing. A court appearance is also required for the Driving Safety Course or Deferred Disposition. Do not mail the fine.

Special Instructions for Juveniles

  • You and your parent are required to appear before the Court.
  • You and your parent have a legal obligation to provide the Court in writing with your current address and residence. The obligation does not end when you reach the age of 17.
  • On or before the 7th day after the date you or your parent change residence, you or your parent shall notify the Court of the current address by completing a Juvenile Change of Address form (available at the Court Clerk's window).
  • A violation of the address change requirement may result in arrest and is a Class C misdemeanor punishable by fines up to $500.
