The City of Novato Police Department conducted a special traffic enforcement from Friday, February 24 to early Saturday morning on February 25, 2012. Their efforts were funded by a grant from the State of California Office of Traffic Safety.
Two drivers were arrested by Novato Police Officers on suspicion of DUI. Further, officers of the Northern Marin County City also cited forty-four drivers for speeding tickets, arrested one person for a drug offense and issued citations to two people for driving on a suspended license.
Speeding tickets and other moving violations are handled at the Marin County Superior Court via the traffic clerk’s office in Room C-10 at that Marin County Hall of Justice. Contested traffic tickets are heard by a court commissioner in Department N. A conviction for a speeding ticket, red light camera ticket or other moving violation will result in points being placed on a driver’s DMV record and in increased insurance rates. One point violations like speeding and stop sign violations will remain on a driver’s record for insurance and negligent operator purposes for three years.
