The City is committed to increasing public safety on its streets by giving qualified defendants the opportunity to participate in a driver safety diversion program. Programs are designed to heighten driver awareness and establish safer habits that lead to fewer violations and collisions.
To qualify for a program you must meet the standards established for the specific program. Most often that will include:
- The ticket involving a single moving violation.
- No convictions for a moving violation or traffic crime within a specified time. (Depending on the type of violation the specified time will be either two years or five years).
- No participation in a court-supervised traffic safety class or diversion program within a specified time. (Depending on the type of violation the specified time will be either two years or five years).
- Having a valid non-commercial driver license or permit.
- Enter a plea of No Contest.
- Sign-up for a specific traffic school class (the court will provide the class information).
- Pay the court diversion fee in full within the 90-day period.
- Contact the school, pay the registration fee and register for the class.
- Successfully complete the class.
- Provide proof of completion of the class to the court within the 90-day period.
- Successful completion of the program within 90-days will result in the ticket being dismissed. The court will not extend the completion date for any reason.
