Late charges are accrued on the 30th day from the date of issuance of citation. As of August 16th, 2011, any citations issued after this date and are appealed within 14days a late fee will be added on the 30th day after issuance of the ticket or 14 days after the denial of the first appeal, whichever is longer. A pending second appeal will not remove a hold or suspend a late charge. If the appeal process takes more than 30 days a late charge will be added 14 days after a decision is made. Citations can be paid while in appeal to remove a hold on your record; if the appeal is accepted the payment will be refunded. Paying a citation has no affect on the appeal outcome.
