For a traffic violation, 'promptly' would mean before the scheduled court date. There might be a time specified where you could just pay the fine before the court date, such as 60 days if the court date was later. Gives them time to process the payment and clear you from the court docket.

Depends on the situation and jurisdiction. For a traffic violation, whom are you expecting to be acting "promptly?" The city/state to notify you? The timeliness of receiving a lawsuit from an injured third party following a collision?

The term “prompt” is commonly used in contracts, but what does it mean? ten months after the filing of a lawsuit was not prompt “as a matter of law. over what these terms mean, it is wise to define them in your contract.

If the traffic regulations where you live didn't define it, you use the common usage which is immediately/quickly.

Many words have no specific "legal" definition.
In those cases, the definition reverts to its common usage.
Promptly = "with little or no delay; immediately."

That depends upon the jurisdiction.
