The state court system launched a new online service Friday, enabling lead-footers to do just that.

Some drivers who get nabbed for speeding can now go online to request reducing the ticket and process the citation without having to appear at the courthouse.

Several counties have jumped on board and others are expected to soon follow suit.

But if you're in Wake County, not so fast.

District Attorney Lorrin Freeman said she still has some concerns about how the online program operates. So for now, tickets in Wake County will still be handled the old-fashioned way.

If you live in Johnston County, you may already be familiar with the online system. The state tested it out there online for several months before rolling out the program to other counties.
