Traffic Abstract Fee to Increase to $20 on July 1

Posted on Jun 24, 2010 in Press Releases

The fee for a traffic abstract will increase from $7 to $20 on July 1, 2010.

The Hawaii State Judiciary has been charging $7 for a certified traffic abstract since 1996, $5 of which was deposited into the state general fund and $2 into the Judiciary Computer Special Fund.

In accordance with a measure passed by the 2010 legislature raising the fee, $18 will be deposited into the general fund and $2 will continue to go into the Judiciary Computer Special Fund.

The Judiciary anticipates that, during this fiscal year, it will generate about 500,000 traffic abstracts.  With the $13 increase in the traffic abstract fee, an additional $6.5 million could be added to the general fund.

Certified traffic abstracts report all alleged moving violations and any resulting convictions arising from the operation of a motor vehicle and any administrative license revocation.

Traffic abstracts are available at District Courts on all islands and are usually requested for insurance purposes.
