Tickets that do not require court appearances may be paid by telephone or the Web.
Minnesota court officials announced that automated phone and on line systems now accept credit card fine payments.
Payments can be made at (651) 281-3219 in the Twin Cities or (800) 657-3611 elsewhere, as well as www.mncourts.gov. Payment also still may be made at the courthouse where the ticket was issued or by mail.
â€œCentralizing and automating the processing of these payable citations will cut costs, improve service and increase revenue for state and local government,â€ said State Court Administrator Sue K. Dosal. â€œItâ€™s just one of several ways we are using technology to increase our efficiency.â€
