The City of Salem offers Traffic School for those who receive a citation. Streetrules.com is the only online traffic school accepted by Salem City. An advantage of taking Traffic School is to provide drivers who normally do not receive citations on a regular basis the opportunity to take an online class and have the citation dismissed. Traffic school will be a total of $155.00. This includes the Plea In Abeyance fee and all other fees. To qualify for Salem City’s Traffic School, you must meet the following criteria:
If you have any questions regarding any of the above situations, you may contact the Salem City Prosecutor’s Office at 801-423-2770 ext 210.
You agree to pay for and successfully complete the online Street Rules approved traffic course and provide the Court with a copy of the Certificate.
Upon completion of the course, the City Prosecutor will dismiss the charge. If you fail to comply, a guilty plea will be entered and your traffic school and plea in abeyance fee will be forfeited. At that time, you will need to contact the Court to pay for the full citation fee.
Please carefully follow these steps in order to complete traffic school:1. Fill out the Plea in Abeyance form online and submit it to the Court.
2. You cannot proceed if you did not complete the above step.
3. Wait 2 business days from the time you have submitted the Plea in Abeyance form to allow the clerks time to set the payment up online. You will not be contacted by the court nor do you need to contact them.
