A violation that includes failure to exhibit a valid driver license, registration, or proof of insurance on demand can be dismissed by the Clerks Office for a $10.00 fee if they show proof of a valid driver license, registration, or proof of insurance issued prior to the date of the citation.

If after the 30 days you will be required to pay the full amount and proof of compliance is not required.
All vehicle defects are nonmoving violations with a fine of $93.00.
