Determine Where You Were Ticketed in Nebraska
Pinpoint where you were when you received your traffic ticket. If you can't recall the exact area, determine the NE county. Once you have your traffic violation information, call the traffic court for that county to find your lost ticket information. If the county court has no record of your traffic citation, try the Municipal Court near where you were cited.
Recalling the law enforcement agency that cited you will help in determining which Nebraska court to call. As a rule, traffic tickets cited by the Nebraska Highway Patrol and the Sheriff's Department go to county courts. Traffic tickets issued by city police officers get filed with municipal courts.
The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may not be in a position to offer details about your traffic ticket or traffic violation. However, your local NE DMV office may be able to help you get in touch with the correct court to find lost traffic ticket information.
NOTE: If you're looking for information about a lost parking ticket, you'll need to contact the agency that handles parking tickets in the city where you received it.
Determine How You'll Plead to Your NE Ticket
After you've retrieved your lost traffic ticket information, decide on a plea for your traffic violation. If you opt to plead "guilty," submit your traffic ticket fine payment to the presiding court. Or, if you've decided to challenge your traffic ticket, appear at the NE traffic court on the day and time posted on your traffic citation.
If you fail to respond to your traffic ticket in Nebraska, the traffic court will not accept "I lost my ticket" as a valid excuse. Your NE driver's license will be suspended, and, in some instances, the court may issue a bench warrant for your arrest.
NOTE: A traffic ticket attorney may be highly beneficial to you if you have a serious moving violation. Attorneys can help you fight all types of traffic violations including speeding tickets, red light tickets, and others.
