4.  What if my citation is designated as “Correctable”?

If your citation is marked correctable, you have an opportunity to show proof of insurance or correct the vehicle defect within 30 days of issuance of the citation.  If you are unable to correct the citation within 30 days, you must request an extension at the City Clerk’s Office prior to your due date.

  • For insurance-related violations, you must present a copy of your citation and proof that the vehicle was insured at the time of the offense to the City Attorney’s Office, 800 Cushman Street.  When your citation has been marked corrected, return the corrected copy to the City Clerk’s Office.
  • For equipment violations, you must bring a copy of your citation and the modified vehicle to the Fairbanks Police Department for inspection at 911 Cushman Street.

If you choose not to correct the defect, you may request an arraignment (see section on Optional Court Appearance) or pay the total amount due at the City Clerk’s Office.  If you do not pay or correct your citation, a default judgment may be entered against you for the maximum fine permitted by law and a $10 surcharge, plus $50 in court and collection costs.

The City Clerk’s Office may grant you an extension if your request is within 30 days of issuance of the citation.  If you fail to pay or request an extension before the due date, a default judgment may be entered against you for the maximum fine permitted by law and a $10 surcharge, plus $50 in court and collection costs.  In some cases, you may request that your full payment be assigned to your Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend.  Please contact the City Clerk’s Office within 30 days of issuance of the citation for more information.

8.  How do the points affect my license and/or insurance?

Many citations have mandatory points assigned in accordance with the schedule established by the State of Alaska.  These points are applied against your license once you pay the citation, are found guilty of the offense, or fail to respond to the citation and a default judgment is entered against you.  To find out how many points you have or how to reduce the points that have accumulated on your license, visit the State of Alaska Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website at http://doa.alaska.gov/dmv/ or visit the DMV at 1979 Peger Road, Fairbanks, or call (907) 269-5551.  The City does not regulate or administer accumulation of points.  To determine how point deductions affect your insurance, contact your insurance company directly.
