Mail-in Traffic Diversion

Eligibility for Traffic Diversion is determined on a case by case basis, which is determined after you speak to a Traffic Unit Case Manager. You may submit an application for Traffic Diversion (Click here to download or print) by mail and you will receive a response in the mail with the Division Agreement for your signature, and a letter that explains how to prepare the payment. 

If your citation includes a registration and/or an insurance violation, you MUST provide a printed document showing that the vehicle has been updated with a current registration and/or valid proof of insurance when submitting your application. If you did not have insurance at the time of the citation, your current insurance must be a six-month prepaid policy. 

Your application will not be accepted without the required documentation.

If your ticket involved an ACCIDENT, you must provide proof of insurance and proof that you have been released from liability. This includes proof that you are not responsible for damages or that you have paid for the damages.

If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) you are not eligible for Traffic Diversion regardless of whether you were driving a commercial vehicle at the time of ticket.

To Begin the Diversion Process

-    Contact the Traffic Unit at 913-715-3011 to have the application sent to you, if you are unable to download and print the Traffic Diversion Application document in the link above.
-    When the Courthouse reopens, you may come to the Diversion Office and begin Traffic Diversion without an application once it has been determined that you are eligible, if you are able to pay in full.
-    You may also appear in Court on your scheduled Court date to discuss your options with a Prosecutor. 

It is important that you DO NOT pay the fine on the citation if you are interested in Diversion.
