Traffic Violations

There are basically two kinds of Pell City traffic citations as described below:

“Court Appearance Not Required” Citation – If you have a “court appearance not required” citation and would like to take care of it without appearing in court, you may do so by appearing in-person at the court office and entering a plea of guilt, or you may do so by going on line pellcity.govtportal.com and pay for the citation.

You may also remit your plea & payment by mail: We must receive such plea and payment within our Municipal Court office on or before your prescribed court date – postmak dates will not be honored as meeting the deadline! You may mail your pleas and payment in full to:

Pell City Municipal Court
1905 1st Ave North
Pell City, AL 35125
Attn: Traffic Court

If you do not want to plead guilty to the citation, you must appear on your court date to enter a plea before the judge. At that time, your case will be continued to another date for trial.

“Court Appearance Required” Citations – If your citation requires a court appearance, you MUST appear in court on the court date listed on the citation. You will appear before the municipal judge and enter a plea on the charge. If you plead guilty, the judge will determine your fine amount and assess court cost and you will be able to pay at that time.

If you do not know whether or not your citation requires a court appearance, you may contact the Pell City Municipal Court at 205-338-5223.
