The following words and phrases as used in this policy shall mean:
To request an amendment of your citation, you may contact the Legal Department’s Prosecution Section either in person or by telephone. Completion of the City’s diversion application is not necessary for amendment requests. If you choose, you may also request an amendment at your first appearance in Municipal Court. However, if you plead Not Guilty and set your citation for trial, you will no longer be eligible for an amendment.
Upon requesting an amendment, you will be informed of whether you are eligible and of the cost of the amendment. Amendment costs are $150.00 plus the amount of the fine for each of your infractions as listed on the Municipal Court fine schedule.
Pursuant to STO 204(a), fines for traffic infractions committed within a road construction zone are doubled and are tripled under TMC 10.20.170(a) for traffic infractions committed within a school zone. You will also be required to pay court costs in the amount of $76.00.
You must agree to pay the amount of the amendment in full within 30 days of its approval or according to payment terms approved by the Municipal Court.
If you are convicted of a moving violation, this fact will be reported by the Court to the Kansas Department of Revenue, Driver Control Bureau. Pursuant to Kansas Statute 8-255, your driver’s license may be restricted, suspended or revoked if you are convicted of three or more moving violations committed on separate occasions within a 12 month period. Conviction of a moving violation may also affect your cost for motor vehicle liability insurance. Receipt of an amendment to a non-moving violation will keep a moving violation from being reported on your driving record.
