The registered owner or lessee may contest the Notice of Violation by mail or in-person.
To Contest by Mail
Please place a check mark in the box next to "Contest by mail" on the Notice of Violation Liability Stub. Enclose the "Notice of Violation Liability Stub" along with a statement signed by the registered vehicle owner, lessee or renter of the vehicle setting forth facts that establish a defense (see list of "Defenses"). Also enclose any supporting evidence, such as photographs, affidavits, official police vehicle theft and/or recovery reports (send copies and not originals as these documents will not be returned to you). An administrative hearing officer will determine whether you have met the burden of proof or whether you must pay the fine. Please mail all contesting materials to:
