How would a case become a Uniform Traffic Ticket?
If the offense date on the Notice of Violation is before July 1, 2013, a Notice of Violation will get filed on as a Uniformed Traffic Ticket if you do not pay the violation fee or if you do not file an affidavit alleging one of the allowable defenses. If you wish to contest the violation, you will have the opportunity to contest the Notice once it becomes a Uniformed Traffic Ticket.

If the offense date is on or after July 1, 2013, you are given sixty days to pay the violation, submit an affidavit of allowable defenses for the violation, or contest the violation. If you contest the violation, it will remain a Notice of Violation and will not become a Uniformed Traffic Ticket. Even if you contest the Notice, it will not be reported on your driving record.

If you do not comply with the Notice of Violation, the City can put a hold on your vehicle tag registration until the ticket is paid and/or file a Uniformed Traffic Citation.
