How hard is it to pay for a traffic ticket, I often thought. It must be easy, it is something almost everyone has got at one point or the other, and must be updated with time, at least that’s what I thought. Oh, how wrong I was.
I had to wake up early to look up courts near me to pay, look for directions, go to the court, and once there, I was shocked at the queue! I had to stand there for hours, waiting for my turn to come, and had to take time off work! I had never expected something this common to be so nightmare inducing. How great would it have been, if there was another way.
Well, if you are from New Jersey, you are in luck! You now don’t have to wait for long, as I once had to, but rather, you can pay your tickets from the convenience of your own home! Well, now it is possible due to a new measure by New Jersey Meadowlands Commission (NJMC), an online portal for traffic tickets and municipal complaints, NJMCDirect.com.

NJMCDirect.com is a fast, easy, secure, and economical way in order to pay your traffic tickets from the convenience of your own home. You need a reliable internet connection and a device with a browser capable of opening NJMCDirect.com.
Then you need your ticket or challan, that will have your ticket number, a court ID, and a prefix. You also need your license plate number, as on your vehicle or driving license. Finally you need a method of online bill payment, a credit or debit card, Visa or Mastercard.
