If a plea of guilty is entered by mail, does the fine need to be paid at the same time?

In general, when a driver mails the court their guilty plea, the court will send back a letter with the fine amount with a date certain to pay the fine. If the driver does not get a response in 5 business days, the driver should call the court to follow up on the status of their ticket.
