If you are charged with a routine traffic violation, such as speeding (25 mph & under), failure to yield, running a stop sign, and other minor violations and you wish to plead guilty, you may inquire as to the proper procedure with the District Court Clerk’s Office located at 201 Spring Street, Springdale, Arkansas. You will be allowed to pay the fine and costs without appearing in court.
If you wish to plead not guilty to the traffic offense, or you are charged with a more serious misdemeanor, such as reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance, assault, battery, or failure to carry liability insurance with an accident, you must appear in Court on the date and time noted on the traffic citation or summons.
If you fail to appear in court, a warrant for your arrest will be issued so it is very important you know when you are to appear. If you have any questions concerning your court date, you can contact the Springdale District Court Clerk’s Office at 750-8150.
If you have a good driving record, you may be eligible to have a minor traffic offense taken off your record. You must still pay the fine and costs, however, it will not go on your record if you receive no other violations within the time period specified.
You may also have to meet other conditions, such as being required to complete a defensive driving course. If you are not represented by an attorney and you are charged with a minor traffic offense or city ordinance violation that occurred in Springdale, you can contact the Springdale City Attorney’s Office anytime within 1 day before your court date to see what their settlement offer is on your case but you are under no obligation to contact them.

You can file a petition to seal your record. It does not cost to file a Petition to Seal. Certain offenses cannot be sealed for a specific time period under Arkansas law (for instance, Driving While Intoxicated). Ark Code An. Section 16-19-1401, et. seq. sets out the law or seal by misdemeanors in Arkansas.
