Traffic Program

The traffic diversion program is set up to assist with the processing of traffic cases.  The purpose of traffic diversion is to come to an agreed settlement and not to argue the facts of the case.  Admittance to the traffic diversion program is at the total discretion of the prosecutor, who makes this decision.  The Prosecutor may consider the following factors:  defendant's prior record; aggravating circumstances involved in the stop; the police officer's objection or request for diversion; any other factors deemed relevant to the decision; and whether the offense is a Traffic Rule 13 offense.  If the prosecutor decides not to permit a case to be placed in diversion, there is no appeal process.
