No point on the license if the citation is removed online

PARMA, Ohio – Parma City Court is battling COVID-19 in an interesting way. In order to keep people away from his courthouse, starting Wednesday, individuals can waive their two-point traffic ticket by paying online and, in return, no points are added to their driving record.

The exemptions do not apply to offenses related to road accidents.

The jurisdiction of the Parma Municipal Court includes the following areas: Broadview Heights, Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, Linndale, North Royalton, Parma, Parma Heights and Seven Hills.

“This is an extraordinary act of cooperation to encourage citizens who have points or driving record issues to forgo their citation online and to avoid the assessment of points added to their driving license. “the court said in a statement. “This is an online-only and limited-time waiver to prevent crowds from gathering in a face-to-face environment in an effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect health and the welfare of the community at large. “

Summons can be overturned in court website.

People who choose not to waive any citation can still do so by contacting the court.

“Your right to challenge all charges has not been limited in any way. We are simply providing a temporary pointless solution to ease the burden on everyone involved,” the court said.

Anyone wishing to challenge a subpoena or plead not guilty or request an extension can do so by emailing the clerk of the court, here. You can also call the court at 440-887-7400.

The court is also taking additional measures to prevent the spread of the disease. This includes the requirement for masks for anyone entering the field. Only lawyers, defendants and persons appearing in court or anyone making payments will be permitted in the building. Anyone with COVID-19-like symptoms is urged not to go to court.
