What is NJMCDirect?
Traffic tickets, fines, and fees are often a pain. You generally have to take your challan and go to court to pay it in full, within a time period, or along with late fees/ fines. This may take over half a day, and you may have to take a day off work. This process is inexplicably long, and complicated, especially in this digital age.
Considering these factors, NJMC( New Jersey Meadowlands Commission) has created the NJMCDirect portal, a digital payment portal for paying off your traffic tickets and fines, at your convenience wherever is convenient. Using your mobile device, or your laptop/ computer, you can pay your fines in a timely and convenient fashion, in a few steps.
This article will further elaborate on how you can use the portal to pay your fines and fees
How to Pay NJ Traffic Ticket Online?
NJMCDirect is an effortless and fast way to pay your NJ court traffic fees and fines online. This system uses your prefix code and eliminates all the need to spend a large amount of time queuing and looking for NJ courts in order to pay your traffic fees and fines. This facility further helps you to avoid paying late fines. To use the NJMCDirect portal, you’ll need the following
- Parking or traffic ticket: On a traffic/ parking violation, an officer will hand you a challan for the amount of the fine to be paid. The ticket shall contain an encrypted court ID, and a ticket number, and shall mention the rule/ law violated. This is the most important part of this process, as without this no payments can be made.
