I got a traffic ticket. Can I keep it off my driving record?
Under certain circumstances, the City Attorney's Office will allow persons who receive traffic tickets (i.e., speeding, disobeying stop sign, careless driving, disobeyed traffic signal) to keep the ticket off their record. If a person desires to keep a traffic offense off their record, the person can call the City Attorney's Office at 479-750-8173 before their arraignment date, and see if the ticket has been booked into the City's computer system. If the ticket has been booked, the person can come in before arraignment and try to settle the ticket with an attorney within the office, or the person can plead not guilty at their arraignment date and try to settle the ticket with an attorney within the office before their trial date.

Persons are not allowed under Arkansas law to keep such offenses as DWI off their record, and under no circumstances will the City Attorney's Office take any action which is not allowed by Arkansas law.
