Citation Appeal Process
Those persons wishing to contest the citation they received have ten days from the day the citation was issued to submit an official "Citation Review" form to city hall. Failure to submit a citation review request form within ten days of receiving a citation forfeits your right to appeal the citation. Failure to remit payment within thirty (30) days of receiving a citation will result in additional criminal charges.
Failure to pay fine will result in legal action against the violator. The Department of Motor Vehicles may refuse to renew the registration if your vehicle until the total amount of fines, including administrative fees, are paid. (§ 4760 C.V.C. & § 4763 C.V.C.)
The citation appeals process may be initiated in one of two ways.
