The department may waive the requirement to file proof of financial responsibility if you file satisfactory evidence with the department showing that at the time this citation was issued, the vehicle was covered by a liability insurance policy or that you were otherwise exempt from the requirements to provide evidence of financial responsibility.
YOU MUST WAIT 5 WORKING DAYS FROM THE DAY YOU RECEIVE YOUR CITATION BEFORE THE MUNICIPAL COURT IS ABLE TO PROCESS ANY TRANSACTIONS. THE MUNICIPAL COURT WILL NOT HAVE YOUR CITATION, AND IS UNABLE TO PROCESS ANY TRANSACTION UNTIL THE ORIGINAL CITATION IS RECEIVED IN THE COURT.
