You can use the Internet for the most part to check traffic ticket status. If your state's court system allows consumer access to their computer system. If you knew the Docket number of the case, you could easily find out the status of your ticket. On the other hand, if there's no Internet access, you will have to call the Clerk's office, give them the Docket number and wait for their answer on the status of your ticket. This will be the most likely route you will have to use to find the status.
