Little Rock Traffic Court

LITTLE ROCK – Effective immediately, Little Rock District Court, 2nd Division (Traffic Court), will handle as many of its cases via “virtual court” as possible, using the WebEx program. Ticket recipients should contact the court to make sure they get on the “Cyber-Docket.”  

This is part of the City’s response to the covid-19 pandemic. It comes following indications that the City’s court building will likely not be open to the public until July. And, when it opens, no more than ten at a time may be present in the courtroom—including the judge and court employees. Handling as many cases through the “Cyber-Docket” as possible will allow in court proceedings to move much smoother and quicker when the time comes to reopen the court building to the public.

The easiest, and quickest, way to contact the court to get on the Cyber-Docket is by emailing the court at TrafficCourtContact@littlerock.gov. You may call the court at (501) 371-4733 Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00am – 4:00pm. Please include the following details in any message you leave with the court in order to facilitate communications: Name, Date of Birth, Email Address, Phone Number, and a mailing address where you receive your mail.

Not all citations require a court appearance. At the City’s website, littlerock.gov, clicking on “For Residents” pulls down a menu with a “Traffic Court” line item, at which one may track and deal with their citation.

WebEx, like Zoom, allows defendants to join by video or by phone. Invitations are sent by email the morning of court and defendants can join at the times they are assigned. If someone joins the session early, they should be prepared for a bit of a wait, but they’ll be able to observe how other cases are being handled.

This information applies only to Little Rock District Court, 2nd Division, which handles all traffic tickets issued inside the city limits of Little Rock
