Deferred Disposition

Deferred Disposition is a form of probation, which allows for dismissal of a citation if certain criteria are met. With successful completion of Deferred Disposition, there is not a final conviction and the complaint may not be used against you for any purpose. A conviction will not be reported. The probationary period is 90 to 180 days.

If you were under 25 years of age at the time of the alleged offense and charged with a moving violation, you will be required to complete a driver safety course within 90 days as a requirement of your probation.

Reasons for Ineligibility
You are not Eligible for Deferred Disposition if:
  • You were on deferred for another offense within the last 12 months from the date of the current offense
  • You were charged with speeding 25 miles or more over the speed limit
  • You are charged with a violation in a construction or maintenance work zone when workers are present
  • You hold a Commercial Driver’s License
Application Process
  • Appear on or before the appearance date on your citation.
  • Enter a plea of "Guilty" or "No Contest."
  • Pay the full amount of the fine plus a $50 special expense fee.
