The San Diego Superior Court has launched the MyCitations program, an online tool developed by the Judicial Council of California. The tool allows people in eligible infraction cases to look up their citation online, answer a series of simple questions, and submit a request to the court for a possible reduction in the amount owed based on their financial situation. Requests for payment plans, more time to pay, or community service in lieu of a fine can also be submitted via MyCitations.

This user-friendly online option allows the public to make requests without the need to appear in court. The MyCitations tool can be found at
