A Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC) is a disposition and not considered a conviction. North Carolina licensed drivers are allowed two (2) PJCs to be used during a five-year period per household.

If your traffic citation does not indicate a court cost and fine to be paid, then that ticket is considered a serious traffic offense (non-waivable) and could result in a suspension of driving privileges. It also indicates a required Court appearance.
