Motorists who receive a moving violation in a school zone for speeding or cell phone use may be offered a Deferred Disposition by the City of Austin Municipal Court Prosecutors.
If the deferral is offered, the defendant may participate in the Safe Routes to School Deferred Disposition Program which consists of two shifts with a crossing guard and the Program Coordinator or one of our supervisors. In exchange for successfully completing the program, the offense does not go on their driving record and is not reported to their car insurance provider. The program is not intended to raise school zone speeding and distracted driving awareness. We enjoy a 99+ percent positive feedback rating and have had only one repeat offender.
