Traffic Safety Program

County Attorney Traffic Safety Program

The Oldham County Attorney’s Office offers an optional diversion program for individuals charged with certain pre-payable traffic violations.  The program is authorized by KRS 186.574(6) and it lets participants have their traffic citations dismissed without the citation showing up on their driving record or having points added to their driver’s license.

Prior to entry into the Traffic Safety Program, the Oldham County Attorney’s office will conduct a review of your traffic record to determine eligibility.  Upon entry into the program, you must complete the registration form, pay an administrative fee of $160.00 and, depending on the nature of the traffic citation, complete additional requirements requested by the County Attorney’s office that may include public service work and/or online traffic school.  After completing the program requirements and maintaining a clean driving record for six (6) months, the County Attorney’s office will dismiss the citation.
