CAREFULLY READ BOTH THE FRONT AND BACK OF YOUR UNIFORM TRAFFIC TICKET.  Be sure you understand from the arresting officer the exact time and before whom you are to appear.  If this ticket is written for a traffic violation and you forfeit bail, plead guilty or nolo contendere, or are convicted after a trial, this violation will be placed against your driving record, or forwarded to your home state.  Failure to comply with the terms of this summons may result in the suspension of your driver’s license by your home state.  You are required by law to appear in court for certain offense.

To pay a traffic ticket by mail or in person, use the court address written on the front of the summons. When paying by mail, a bank cashier’s check, money order, or certified check are the only acceptable forms of payment.  Personal checks are NOT accepted.  Please write your name as it appears on the ticket and the ticket number on your cashier’s check, money order, or certified check.  This will ensure you receive proper credit for your payment.  Make the cashier’s check, money order, or certified check payable to the name of the Trial Officer on the front of the ticket next to the court address. Cash payments are accepted in-person only.  You may also pay in person by credit card, debit card, cashier’s check, money order, or certified check.

Non traffic related summary court criminal cases are handled at the address written on the front of your ticket.  For example, the Myrtle Beach Magistrate is located at 1201 21st Ave North in Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.  Traffic related cases are not handled at the Myrtle Beach Magistrate Office. Verify the address of the court on the front of your ticket. The primary aim of traffic law enforcement is to reduce traffic accidents, injuries, and deaths through fair, impartial, and reasonable enforcement of traffic laws. Fines and court costs are collected and distributed according to state law.  Some of that revenue is used for victim of crime advocate services and to operate the state criminal justice academy for law enforcement training. None of the revenue collected from traffic tickets is retained by the Town of Briarcliffe Acres.
