What is bond?
When a person receives a traffic ticket or is arrested, they have 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 $75.00 cash bond ($100.00 cash bond for more serious violations) or a bail bond card. Bond for misdemeanors is $100.00 and a judge must set the bond for felony charges. If you are found innocent, the bond will be refunded.
