Is my ticket payable?<
One way to tell if you ticket is payable or not is to check Missouri Case.Net and see if there’s a 'Pay by Web' option displayed when your ticket is displayed. If there is, then it’s payable. If not, it’s not payable and you will be required to show up for court. You can also reference the below list for some common payable and common non-payable tickets.
