    Speeding Ticket in Collections

    I got a speeding ticket in Oregon and I live in Utah. I set up a payment plan for 50 a month. I paid three months but forgot to pay these past two months honestly. When I tried to make another online payment my records were no longer in the system. I called and the court said it had been sent to collections. I haven't received notice from the collection agency yet. Is there any way I can pay the original amount with the courts and prevent this from affecting my credit?

    If it was already sent to collections, the collections agency is now in charge of your debt so you will have to arrange payment with them. Hopefully they haven't reported it to the credit companies yet which would allow you to pay off the debt before it does get reported.

    This is the mistake by the collective authorities, in the court room you can show your receipts as a proof and you mention collective agency have not send any notice to you so you are good in this case.
