Dismissals on Proof

EQUIPMENT:
Most equipment violations may be dismissed if repaired by 1/2 hour after sundown on the following business day after the violation was issued. To prove such a repair within the required time frame, this affidavit must be filled out and signed by a police officer or a DMV approved inspection station mechanic. The affidavit must be completely filled out and submitted with your plea. You MUST KEEP a COPY of the affidavit in case it is lost in the mail or otherwise. If you are unable to produce an affidavit or copy of the affidavit, the summons will be subject to review by the Prosecutor’s Office. 


INSURANCE:
If you are charged with an insurance violation, you may provide proof that the vehicle was insured on the date the violation was issued. Proof of insurance may only be considered by providing a letter from the Insurance Company (not an insurance broker). The letter must provide specific information and most insurance companies know what to put in the letter. Insurance cards, policies, etc. are NOT acceptable as proof of insurance, only a specific letter as indicated is acceptable. If the letter is sufficient to prove the vehicle was insured on the date in question, no fine or surcharge will be imposed. The maximum fines for uninsured vehicles can be up to $1500 and carries an $88 surcharge. A plea of guilty or conviction for uninsured vehicle will also carry a civil penalty of $750 from the Department of Motor Vehicles as well as the revocation of your driver’s license for one year.


INSPECTION:
Summonses for uninspected vehicles may NOT be cured by getting the vehicle inspected. If the vehicle was not inspected at the time the summons was issued, there is no way to correct said violation.


REGISTRATION:
Summonses for unregistered vehicles may NOT be cured by getting the vehicle registered. If the vehicle was not registered at the time the summons was issued, there is no way to correct said violation.
