Passing a School Bus
A serious traffic violation, which applies to commercial motor vehicle operators.
An offense in a construction zone when workers are present.
Speeding in excess of 25 mph over the posted limit.
Requirements for Deferred Disposition include:
The defendant will be placed on probation for a set period of time (to be determined by the Judge).
Payment of the fee in full (amount to be set by the Judge).
Other requirements as set out by the state or Judge depending on the defendant’s age and offense.
Complete and return of the required paperwork by the due date.
The case will be dismissed as long as all requirements are met within the time frame set forth by the Judge. Deferred Disposition requirements are set by the Judge based on the defendant's age and offense.
