What is a contested hearing?

If you believe you did not commit the violation, then you should select box three and have a contested hearing. As a result of a contested hearing, the penalty may stay the same, be reduced, or the ticket dismissed. In the event that you have subpoenaed witnesses, you may be required to pay court costs. A contested infraction hearing is a civil case and the Judge will decide upon a preponderance of the evidence.
