  • The 25th District Court has re-opened it's dropbox for payments; we will take Personal/Cashiers Check or Money Order payable to the 25TH DISTRICT COURT with your case or ticket number LEGIBLY PRINTED on payment

The 25th District Court is pleased to offer a free, voluntary, online traffic ticket review process for eligible traffic tickets issued by the City of Lincoln Park Police Department, The City of Ecorse Police Department and the City of River Rouge Police Department. This allows you to request a review of your traffic ticket online, at your convenience, so you don't have to come to the courthouse.

Shortly after you submit certain information, the respective prosecutor will evaluate your eligibility to participate in this new program. Once you are deemed eligible to participate, you can sign up to receive emails or text messages with the status of your review as well as the outcome. If you meet the eligibility requirements, you will be offered a 'no-points' violation.

We believe this will save you a significant amount of time while preserving your rights. We hope you agree.
