Does any one know if you can add more than 4 charges on a cititation using maccs or etickets. Just to save you the hassel of starting a whole new ticket just to include additional the charges?

You would think with the electronic format you would be able to add in additional charges. It’s definitely easier than the traditional hand written ticket but still would be helpful to have that option.

Hey, it could be worse. Here in NC, our e-Citation program allows us to put up to 10 charges on a citation, however we are mandated by the Administrative Office of the Courts to only put two charges on each electronic citation. The reason? Paper citations only allowed for two charges each, and the state doesn’t want to lose out on the $193 in court costs they get per citation. So if I write one e-cite with 10 charges, the courts get $193. But if I write 5 cites with 2 charges each, the state makes $965 just in court costs.

It’s totally not a racket or anything.

Mississippi. One charge, one ticket. Two charges, two tickets. Three charges, three tickets. Plus, special DUI tickets just for DUI offenses.

Plus a summons book for affidavits on misdemeanors.

Issue the cite then go to actions and continue citation and you can add more charges without putting the operator and vehicle info in again.

Will that allow you to add more than just 3 charges per citation or does that just generate a new citation for you with less work? Either way sounds like it helps, thank you.

It will assign a second citation number but saves the hassle of entering everything again.

I purposely scratch out the "Speed 90/17 90/18" box and write out in above space with a crayon. Then save the carbon paper.
