How do I take care of a traffic citation?
For questions regarding a citation, please contact the Dumas Municipal Court at (806)935-3998
can I do if I see a reckless driver?
You may report such action to the police department and we will attempt to locate the vehicle.
However, we may only take action if the police officer personally observes an offense. If you can safely record and provide the make,
color, license plate, and if possible a description of the driver, this can help police in locating the vehicle.
Can the Dumas
Police Department provide me with copies of vehicle registration, drivers license, or criminal history?
NO. By law the police department
cannot distribute this information
Curfew for juveniles
Curfew is at 12:30 am till 6:00 am every day, unless the child is attending
an organized event, work, or emergency. Please contact the Dumas Police Department for further information. (806) 935-3998
car seat laws
All children younger than 8 years old, unless taller than 4’9”, are required to be in the appropriate child safety seat
system wherever they ride in a passenger vehicle. The safety seat system MUST be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
way of saying this is: When a child reaches their 8th birthday – no matter their height, it is legal for the child to use only the
adult safety belt in the passenger vehicle.
Cell phone laws
You cannot use a cell phone while in a school zone (where it’s posted),
unless you are stopped or using a hands free device. Novice drivers in the beginning and intermediate phases of graduated learning
process cannot use cell phone while behind the wheel. School bus drivers must avoid cell phone use while passengers are aboard.
