Don't try to go to court.
The weather has made getting around town a dubious prospect, one you shouldn't undertake unless it's necessary.

You'd normally think "due in court" would qualify as necessary, but Houston's municipal courts are giving you a break.

If you're supposed to be in court today, you can reset your case.

The details:

The City of Houston Municipal Courts remains open today, Monday, January 9, 2012; however, those individuals who are scheduled to appear in court and are unable to make a court appearance due to inclement weather will have the opportunity to reset their case(s).

If you are set for arraignment (first appearance):

You may request a trial setting or send proof of compliance by mail. You may request the DSC (Driving Safety Course) or Deferred Disposition by mail. Visit the court's website at www.houstontx.gov/courts to download the forms needed for each option. We will accept items postmarked through Saturday, January 14, 2012 for these requests.

If you are scheduled for trial:

Resets will be given in person at all court locations beginning Tuesday, January 10, 2012 through Saturday, January 14, 2012.

Citizens are reminded that payments can be made as follows:
