Online Case Resolution Program Now Available for Defective Equipment Traffic Citations

 

The Miami-Dade Courts’ successful Online Case Resolution (OCR) program, which allows drivers who received civil traffic citations for proof of insurance, driver’s license, or auto registration to resolve their cases online, has now been expanded to include defective or malfunctioning vehicle equipment.

Drivers who have received traffic tickets for defective vehicle equipment such as a broken taillight or malfunctioning brake light can now resolve their cases online without ever having to come to court.

With OCR, drivers who have requested a court date for their defective equipment citations can simply upload proof of the equipment repair via their cell phone, tablet or other Internet-connected device. A traffic hearing officer will then review the documents and dismiss the case if the documents are found to be in compliance.

Those who wish to participate in OCR for their eligible defective equipment traffic citations must first request a court date. Once they have received their notice of court appearance, they may follow the instructions on the notice for how to resolve their cases online. There is a $5.00 fee for participation in OCR.

More information, as well as training resources, are available on the Miami-Dade Courts’ Online Case Resolution page, or by phone at 305-548-5333.
