Traffic Ticket Deferral Program

 

To be eligible for the Traffic Ticket Deferral Program, you must:

 

    Have received a ticket in Boone County, Indiana                                 

    Have not had any infractions 6 months prior to receiving the ticket

    Must be 18 years old or older

 

 INFRACTIONS THAT MAY QUALIFY:

 

   Speeding -  25 MPH or less

 

   No Valid Driver's License

 

    Disregarding Traffic Signal/Stop Sign

 

     Driving left of Center

 

    Passing in the no passing zone

 

    Following too closely

 

    Improper U- Turn

 

    Failure to yield

 

    Failure to signal

 

 

INFRACTIONS THAT DO NOT QUALIFY:

 

    Seat Beat Violations Adults or Children

 

    Failure to yield to emergency vehicles

 

    Any individual with a CDL

 

    Driving While Suspended

 

    Driving Without Insurance

 

    Alcohol Violations

 

    Drugs or Paraphernalia

 

    You will be asked to sign a Deferral Agreement and you must pay the Deferral Fee and court costs at that time. This is paid instead of the fee for the ticket through the Court. If you are interested in a Deferral, make sure you do not pay your ticket through the court, as once the ticket is paid it is sent to the BMV, and there is nothing that can be done to reverse this process.

 

    By signing the Deferral Agreement you are agreeing that you will not receive any more Infraction charges during the Deferral Agreement period. If your driving record remains clear after the Agreement period, your ticket will then be dismissed. If you receive another infraction during this Agreement period, your ticket will be re-activated and you will then be liable for the original infraction fee to the Court, and, will receive points on your license. The Agreement period will last twelve months.

 

    All Agreements must be filed with the Court and Deferral Fees paid by the due date listed on your ticket. Failure to have your paperwork submitted or to appear in court on the specified date may result in the suspension of your driving privileges. The deferral period starts when the ticket was issued.

 

If you have a question as to whether your offense is eligible, please call the Traffic Deferral Division at (765) 483-5705.
