Waiverable Traffic Violations

Many traffic violations can be paid without a required court appearance. These are called “waiverable” tickets and can be paid at the Clerk’s Office, over the phone or online by clicking here.

If your ticket is waiverable and you choose to “waive” your right to appear before a judge, you will need to pay it on or before your court date. A list of the most commonly cited waiverable violations is included in this section, along with the costs/fines you can expect to pay. 

As you calculate your amount due, please be aware:

If you have had a prior moving violation within the State of Ohio in the past 12 months, add an additional $50 charge to the amounts listed below.
If you are cited for two or more violations, please contact the Kettering Municipal Court Clerk’s office to determine your total costs and fines owed at 937-296-2461.
