Frequently Asked Questions

I got a ticket. What do I do? – You should contact the Byram Municipal Court on or before the date the officer wrote at the bottom of the citation.

Anyone receiving a traffic citation is entitled to speak with the judge.

Someone called and informed me that there is a warrant for my arrest? – Byram Police Officers will never solicit money over the telephone.
