When you visit the Alaska Court System's E-Pay System and choose the option to make an online payment, the system will ask for either your first and last name or your traffic ticket number. You may not remember any details on your lost ticket. However, by providing your full name, the E-Pay System might provide sufficient information to pay your ticket or contact the court to plead "not guilty."
If your traffic ticket doesn't show up using the E-Pay system, it could mean:
- You need to pay your ticket fines to the city directly.
- You're required to appear in court for the traffic violation.
