Waiverable Traffic Violations
Many traffic violations can be paid without a required court appearance. These are called “waiverable” citations.
If your citation is waiverable and you choose to “waive” your right to appear before a judge, you will need to pay it on or before your court date. A list of the most commonly cited waiverable violations is included in this section, along with the costs/fines you can expect to pay.
As you calculate your amount due, please be aware:
- If you have had a prior moving violation within the State of Ohio in the past 12 months, add an additional $50 charge to the amounts listed below.
- If you are cited for two or more violations, please contact the Kettering Municipal Court Clerk's office to determine your total costs and fines owed at 937-296-2461.
