No. If you pay your citation, you have waived your right to contest it. While contesting a citation, it is placed on a temporary hold and the amount will not increase during this time. Once a determination is made at any level of the review process, the time clock will continue another 21 days to pay or contest further before the amount increases.
The issuing agency (where you received the citation) will review your request. Once a decision is made by the issuing agency, you will receive the results via your chosen method of delivery (mail or email).
You will receive the results of your review via the method (mail or email) chosen when you submitted the appeal.
