Can I dispute the citation?

If you receive a citation, you have the option to pay the fine or request a court hearing. If you wish to schedule a hearing, you are required by law to mail a request to:

Hagerstown, MD Violations Processing Center

PO Box 22091

Tempe, AZ 85285-2091

This request must be received five days prior to the payment due date. You will be mailed a notice of the court hearing date, time and location. If you appear in court, the maximum amount you may be charged is a $100 fine and $22.50 in court costs.

The registered owner of the vehicle also has the option to declare he/she is not liable for the citation based on other circumstantial factors. Complete this form  and mail it to the appropriate address if you need to contest liability in certain instances.
