Infraction Deferral Program
The Infraction Deferral Program is offered by the Prosecuting Attorney to allow safe drivers with a good driving record to maintain that record. Upon the payment of program fees and successful completion of program conditions, after 6 months your Citation will be dismissed. No convictions or “points” relating to your Citation will appear on your BMV driving record.
You are NOT eligible for the Infraction Deferral Program if:
• You have already paid your Citation.
• Your Citation is based upon violation of a Local Ordinance rather than a State Statute.
• You are a Habitual Traffic Offender .
• You have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL).
• You have a Probationary License.
• You do not have a valid drivers License.
• Your Citation is related to a criminal act, you are on probation for a criminal conviction, or other criminal charges are pending.
To participate in the program, you must sign an Infraction Deferral Agreement and abide by its terms. The agreement will be filed with the Court. If there are no violations of the agreement, your Citation will be dismissed.
Unless extraordinary circumstances are present, Citations for Passing a School Bus and Speeding 25+ MPH Over Speed Limit are NOT subject to deferral. Citations which result from a traffic accident are NOT subject to deferral unless proof of insurance is shown. The Prosecuting Attorney has complete discretion to deny any deferral.
Infraction Deferral Fees must be paid to the Traffic Violations Bureau only AFTER approval from the Prosecuting Attorney. You will be notified in writing upon acceptance of the Deferral Agreement.
