The Traffic Court shall consist of two sessions:
The court may allow the defendant to enter a written plea of not guilty through his attorney pursuant to Traf. R. 8(C), except in cases where prohibited by law. The not guilty plea may be faxed or mailed within four (4) days after the defendant received the ticket. A faxed plea must be followed by the original document within forty-eight (48) hours. If the original document is not delivered to this court within forty-eight (48) hours, the defendant shall appear before the court to enter a plea.
All demands for jury trials in traffic cases shall be made in writing and filed with the Clerk of Court, Traffic Division.
DMCR 4.9 shall be followed.
Traf. R. 7(A) shall be followed.
Traf. R. 7(B) shall be followed.
The Clerk of Court shall, by computer transfer, cause a record to be furnished to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles that indicates the number of points to be assessed in the space designated on the reporting form for each traffic violation. The points to be assessed shall be as provided for in O.R.C. 4507.021.
Traf. R. 18 shall be followed.
The Court has determined that defendants, who are charged with minor misdemeanor traffic offenses, would benefit from a special program on traffic safety. The Court has established the Traffic Safety Program, which offers a class where defendants will learn the dangers inherent in speeding, running traffic lights, or other unsafe driving.
The Court finds that an additional fee of $250 is needed to cover the costs associated with the Traffic Safety Program and orders that this additional fee be assessed to participating defendants, pursuant to R.C. 1901.26(B)(1).
