When a person has received a traffic ticket or is arrested, they are required to post bail or a bond. This is a surety that the person will come to court. For a traffic ticket, a person can post a $120 cash bond ($150 cash bond for more serious violations), or bail bond card.
The bond for misdemeanors is $150 and a judge must set the bond for felony charges. Some minor traffic offenses require no cash bond, but the violator must promise to appear in circuit court by signing the ticket.
