Tracking down a lost traffic ticket is relatively easy since all ME traffic violations are handled by the Maine Judicial Branch Violations Bureau. This includes ticket payments, pleas, and replacing lost ME traffic tickets.
If you've lost your Maine traffic citation, call the Violations Bureau at (207) 783-5422. Don't delay. You must respond to your ticket within 20 days of receiving it. Failing to respond to your traffic ticket within this timeframe could lead to your ME driver's license getting suspended.
When you call, you will need to provide your first name, last name, date of birth, and driver's license number. The Violations Bureau agent will then locate your Maine traffic ticket's citation number and inform you on how to pay the ticket or request a court date.
Once you have your lost ME traffic ticket information, you must decide on how to plead. In Maine, you have three options:
- No contest.
- Not Guilty.
NOTE: If you've lost your ME traffic ticket, but have the citation number, you can access your violation record, check a court date, or pay your ticket online through Maine's PayTixx website.
(Plead Guilty or No Contest)
- Pay the fine.
- Option to plea bargain penalties.
- Incur demerit points on your driving record (could lead to license suspension/revocation).
- Possibly incur increase on auto insurance rates.
