Mitigation Hearing

Mitigation means you admit to committing the violation(s) but would like a reduction in the fine amount. During this process you may comment on your side of the story. You understand that "traffic" tickets will go on your driving record. Nontraffic infractions and parking tickets do not go on your driving record.

Contested Hearing

Contested is stating you did not commit the infraction and would like to dispute the charge(s). The judge will review the officer's sworn statement along with any attached report(s) and your sworn statement. The judge's decision will be based on the preponderance of the evidence.
