The Fifth Judicial District (Clackamas County Circuit Court) has created a Violations Bureau under ORS 153.800. Any person who gets a traffic violation will appear before the Violations Bureau. The Violations Bureau permits a violations clerk to take a plea of no contest or not guilty on violations that do not have a required court appearance. The clerk may determine the fine based on your driving record. A plea of not guilty cannot be taken by telephone.
The Clackamas County Circuit Court does NOT allow an extension for the appearance date. You MUST appear on or BEFORE the appearance date on the bottom of the citation. If you decide to appear in person, your appearance will not be in a courtroom.

If you choose to plead no contest, the violations clerk may determine what your fine will be after looking at your driving record. If you choose to plead not guilty, a trial date will be set.
If you choose to plead no contest by telephone, the violations clerk may accept your plea of no contest by telephone with the following exclusions:
