The Traffic Division handles citations, and tickets written by law enforcement. Some traffic violations and non-traffic violation require an appearance in court but others can be paid or contested by mail or online.

Plea for traffic citations

Guilty - No Contest
Admission of guilt
Not Guilty
Denial of one or more violations on issued citation
Officer Court Trial
An officer court trial is the method where you personally appear, the officer is subpoenaed and both parties testify.
Trial By Declaration
A trial by declaration is a method of contesting your citation that is allowed by §40902 CVC. It requires that you and the officer put your statements in writing and the Judge reads these statements and determines the outcome of the case. This option requires that the fine be posted at the time of request in order to proceed.
