Posted Jun 02 2010 11:31am
In partnership with the Austin Municipal Court, the Austin Cycling Association is now offering the first “defensive cycling” classes in the country that may be used for ticket dismissal. Just like defensive driving classes, individuals may take the class to dismiss a ticket once every 12 months.
If you’ve been ticketed by Austin Police for a cycling related traffic violation, you may request this option from the Austin Municipal Court. If approved and you complete the course within the required time frame, your traffic ticket will be dismissed and not show up on your driving record.
Here’s the class schedule for the rest of the year:
The City of Austin’s Defensive Cycling courses were designed and are taught by nationally-certified League Cycling Instructors with the League of American Bicyclists. With our course, you’ll not only meet the requirements to dismiss your traffic ticket, you’ll also learn vital defensive cycling tips on how to become a safer and more proficient cyclist. This course is provided and taught under license by The Center for Cycling Education
