Reserve traffic court date online

Court cuts half of weekly traffic court hearings

No more waiting in line at the courthouse to reserve a date for traffic court. The San Mateo County Superior Court system has launched an online reservation tool, although you can still do things the old-fashioned way by phone or in-person if you insist.

The court took this step even as it reduced the number of weekly traffic calendars available from four to two in response to budget cuts, meaning fewer cases will be heard each time traffic court takes place, according to a press release.

People walking into court hoping to have their case heard on the same day can now expect to be rescheduled to a future calendar, the release said.

Check out the new tool at the court website.
