— Thanks to the Internet, you don't have to wait anymore in long lines to pay your traffic tickets in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Administrative Office of the Courts has launched an online payment system called payNCticket.org for most traffic tickets and related costs.

The system launched as a pilot in March and is now processing an average of about $24,000 per day, which has kept nearly 4,700 people from standing in line at county courthouses.

North Carolina courts handle the payment of more than 500,000 citations per year, including traffic offenses.

Prior to payNCticket, fines and related court costs could be made either in person at the courthouse or by mail.
