Infraction Deferral is a program offered by the Allen County Prosecutor's Office for infraction cases and by the City Attorney's Office for Ordinance Violations. The program offers violators the opportunity to defer their violations, in return for good behavior on our public roadways. The program is administered by the office of the City Court Clerk.

Infraction Deferral is designed to keep points, that would normally be assessed to your driving record as a result of a conviction or admission to a moving traffic citation off of your driving record. A notice of conviction is not sent to the BMV, therefore your insurance company would not normally become aware of this violation, either.
If you choose to utilize this program, you are required to sign a contract that states you will not receive another moving violation anywhere in the U.S. for a period of six or twelve months, depending on your violation. If you are unable to avoid additional moving violations within the designated period, your deferred citation will then be redocketed and you will be held responsible for paying the original fines and fees of this redocketed citation. This time, the notice of conviction will be forwarded to the BMV, and the appropriate moving point will be assessed to you driving record.
Depending on your violation, your total cost will either be $192.50 or $252.50. This does not mean that you pay this amount in addition to your ticket amount. This is your total cost to be on the program for the specified six or twelve month period.
