Minnesota State Law Library
Statutes: (Additional statutes, regulations & opinions may apply to your specific situation.)
The handling of traffic tickets varies from district to district. Below are links to traffic ticket information in some of the districts and counties that have information available on the Internet:
The Minnesota courts now have a state-wide online payment system.
Resources: (Print resources are available at the Law Library and in county law libraries around the state.)
How long a ticket remains on someone's driving record depends on the infraction. To find out what is on your driving record and how long it will stay there, you can call the Dept. of Public Safety at 651-296-2035.
DISCLAIMER: As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.) To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law. Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually required to find a complete and correct answer. For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney. For links to resources on finding an attorney, see http://www.lawlibrary.state.mn.us/selfhelp.html#atty.
