How do I pay a traffic ticket?
If you were issued a traffic citation where the citation number begins with the letter Y, you can pay the fine via US Mail by using the envelope provided by the officer during the traffic stop. Directions are included on the envelope. Some traffic citations require a mandatory court appearance. You can check in the lower right hand corner of your citation for any court information.

If you were issued a municipal citation where the citation number begins with the letter M, you can pay the fine in cash or credit card (MasterCard/Visa/American Express) at the Park Forest Police Department, in person or by mail. Please note that prepayment is not available if the officer checked the “Must Appear” box at the bottom of the Municipal Citation. In this case, the hearing information is included to the right of the “Must Appear” box, and you must appear at the hearing or be subject to a $750 fine.
