Violations & Fine Schedule

Expired vehicle registration 

If you received a citation for operating a motor vehicle (or trailer) with an expired registration, you may be eligible to have the charge dismissed. You must appear in court within 20 business days from the date of your citation and do the following:

  1. Present proof of correction.
  2. Pay a 20% penalty to the Department of Motor Vehicles (through the County Tax Assessor - Collector). Your proof of correction must show that the penalty has been paid. If the penalty is not paid, the Municipal Court cannot dismiss the citation. 
  3. Pay a $20 dismissal fee at the court.

Expired driver’s license 

You may be eligible to have the charge dismissed if you appear in court within 20 working days from the date on your citation and present proof of renewal of your Driver’s License. The paper (temporary) license can serve as proof. A $20 dismissal fee shall be assessed by the court.

Defective equipment

You may be eligible to have the charge dismissed if you appear in court within 20 working days from the date on your citation and present proof of correction to the defective equipment. The court may send a Peace Officer out to the parking lot to inspect the vehicle and verify that the defective equipment has been fixed. A $10 dismissal fee shall be assessed by the court.

Failure to maintain financial responsibility (no insurance)

If you were covered by an insurance policy at the time the citation was issued, you may present proof to have your citation dismissed. The proof of insurance should include the following information:

  • Name, address and telephone number of the insurer
  • Policy number
  • Policy’s effective and expiration date
  • Name and address of insured
  • Policy limits or a statement the coverage complies with the required minimum amounts of liability insurance
  • Make and model of the vehicle covered by the policy

If you were operating a vehicle other than your own, you must provide proof of insurance for that vehicle. The court will contact an agent of the insurer and verify the proof of insurance before the citation is dismissed. If the proof of insurance is not verified, the court will send a notice for you to appear in court.
