The Traffic Department file stamps the individual tickets as they are received from the issuing agency. As the traffic clerks input the information about the citation into the computer, they check to see if the individual received notice of the Court date, if not, the Clerk’s Office sends notice of the next available Court date.
The Traffic Department consists of Minute Clerks, Post-Sentence Clerks and, Subpoena Clerks. The department handles all subpoenas consisting of arraignments, trials, sentencing, pleading, fine payments, rule to show cause, show proof of Driver’s License, Article 892.1 request, Motions and any and all hearings.
The Vermilion Parish Clerk of Court does not set nor collect any of the fines.
All inquiries regarding fines and their collection should be directed to the Sheriff’s department in the parish of the agency that issued the ticket.
