Traffic School
In some cases, you may be eligible to attend traffic school and have the charges against you dismissed. You may be required to pay the amount of the fine as an offset for traffic school, but the violation will not show on your record if you are allowed to attend.
Vehicle Equipment Violations
These are also known as a "fix-it" ticket and are usually related to broken windshields, lights, exhaust pipes, and lowered or otherwise altered chassis. Repair tickets can also be issued for violations including over-tinted windows, and illegal modifications to a vehicle.
Time Matters
If issued a traffic ticket in Alaska, you must respond within five working days of the date you received the ticket unless a specific date is listed on the bottom front of your ticket. If a specific date is listed, you must appear on that day and time.
