The Judge determines the fine amount in court and there is no way of knowing what you will pay prior to your court appearance. The Judge reviews the records, listens to your comments, and bases his/her decision on all the information given. If you do not have money on the date of your appearance, the Court will allow you additional time to pay your fine. This is referred to as payment agreement. There is a $20.00 fee for being placed on a payment plan.
