A Non-Criminal Traffic Infraction is a violation not punishable by jail and which usually can be disposed of by payment of a civil penalty or election to attend a defensive driving course.  A court appearance is not required, except in cases where the violation involves an accident with serious bodily injury or a fatality; a violation for leaving a child in a vehicle unattended; a violation of speed exceeding 30 MPH, a violation of load dropping (load not secured); or a violation of passing a stopped school bus on enter/exit side.
