Citations that have a distracted driving specification may require an additional $100 penalty.
The additional $100 penalty will be waived by the court IF you complete a distracted driver safety course and file the certificate of completion with the court BEFORE the ticket is paid.
Be sure to submit your certificate PRIOR to paying your penalty for the $100 credit. It may, in certain instances, take a few days for the credit to be given. Please call the Court at (419) 238-5767 if you have questions.
There is no cost to complete the distracted driver course and it can be completed by going to this website www.drivertraining.ohio.gov.
** THE COURT ALLOWS 30 DAYS FROM THE COURT DATE TO HAVE YOUR DISTRACTED CITATION PAID. ANY PAYMENT MADE AFTER THE 30 DAYS WILL NOT ALLOW FOR ANY CREDIT AGAINST YOUR FINE AND WILL THEREFORE RESULT IN THE FULL PAYMENT INCLUDING THE ADDITIONAL $100.00 PENALTY.
