Traffic court is resuming on Friday mornings in Douglas County after being placed on hold since March 2020.

District Attorney Suzanne Valdez’s office is not currently requesting that the traffic court issue suspensions to driver’s licenses or warrants for failing to appear due to confusion over reopening the court, according to a release from the office Wednesday. The ultimate decision on whether to do so, though, still rests with the court.


Anyone who is issued a citation with an appearance date should appear in court on the date and time shown — unless resolved ahead of time through a plea, diversion, or the case being dismissed, according to the release.

To find out about potential resolutions to a traffic case, contact the DA’s office at 785-838-2443 or

Traffic court starts at 8:15 a.m. Fridays. See the next six months of scheduled hearings on the district court’s website.
