Traffic violations and violations of City Ordinances are tried in Municipal Court, such as trespassing, driving under the influence, and speeding tickets.
Damages in Civil Court
The Prairie Village Municipal Court has no jurisdiction over damages caused by an auto accident. Settlement of damages is a matter for a Civil Court to decide. To recover damages you will have to file a separate civil suit in another Court. Municipal Courts hear criminal misdemeanor cases involving violations of City Ordinances, Municipal Code violations and traffic offenses.
Upon conviction, a violation may carry a maximum fine of $2,500 or higher in some circumstances, and a possible jail term.
