Default Traffic tickets sent to collections.

I have 2 outstanding traffic tickets and got a letter from some collection agency saying I need ton pay them? Anyone know if I can just go down to satellite city hall and pay it off there?

Also, how can I find out (printed document) the total amount. Can this be done online?

The official Hawai'i traffic court site, eCourt Kōkua, is at: http://jimspss1.courts.state.hi.us:8...ADBA368C95043A

If you've gotten a letter from a collection agency (most states use them now) you're already past the dates for "Simple-n-Easy Pay" and are into *Bonus Round*!!

But you should be able to get the information you want on this site.

Since it's gone to collection and yes it's common for this to happen you must deal with the collection agency; it's out of the states hands. Call the collection agency and make arrangements with them before it's goes too far and you start racking up late fees etc... and whatever else those types of places do. Some collection agencies will strike a deal and have you pay a lump sum of lesser of what you owe. The end result is you can call the court system all you want but it's out of their hands and they have nothing further to do with it.

Call and make sure that the amount you owe is right and then they will have added their charges as well then do yourself a favor and pay it off.

The state sells the unpaid/overdue tickets and fines to collection agencies for a reduced price. You now owe the collection agency. As mentioned, you can probably pay a reduced rate though to the collection agency, if you beg and claim "no money".

I have several tickets out of King County Washington that are in collections. I am paying on 3 of them but the 4th one was originally $550.00 and is now $1900.00 in collections. My cousin lives in Spokane, WA and was able to write the judge that issued his tickets and have them pulled out of collections and reduced considerably but I have yet to find out a way to do this or if this is even true. I have not had any luck yet and am going to just pay the 25% they want down and monthly payments, UNLESS some one knows if there is anyway to get tickets pulled out of collections in Washington state?? Thanks. It's wrong that collections can add as much interest as they do and when you call them to set up a payment plan they make it almost impossible to do.

You are asking in the wrong forum. Hawai'i law has no bearing on a Washington traffic ticket. You should ask in the Seattle forum.
