Boone County Prosecutor's Office

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




   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





    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.
