EXPLANATION OF PHOTO ENFORCEMENT WALK-IN
HEARINGG
This information sheet explains the procedures that will be followed in the hearing on the photo
enforcement ticket issued to your vehicle. Please take a moment to read the form while you wait for your
hearing.
A hearing examiner will conduct the hearing which will be recorded. You will be asked to swear to, or affirm,
the truth of the testimony you will give. You will be asked to state your name and address. The examiner will
then read into the record the information contained on the ticket, including the photo enforcement violation
alleged by the government.
You will be asked to answer the government’s charge. The answers or pleas allowed are: admit, admit with an
explanation or deny. If you answer by admitting, you are agreeing that you committed the violation and you
must pay the fine and any penalties. If you admit with an explanation, you are agreeing that you committed the
violation and are offering testimony to address the fine/penalty amount only. If you deny the violation, the
government’s evidence will be presented for your review.
The government has the burden of proof. The infraction must be established by clear and convincing evidence.
The District’s case consists of the information contained on the Notice of Infraction and other evidence
submitted.
Continuances are rarely granted. You should, therefore, be prepared to present any and all evidence or
documents (i.e., vehicle registration, pictures, etc.) that support your defense.
A decision will be made at the end of the hearing. If you are found liable, you are required to pay the fine and
any penalties within 30 calendar days. At the end of the hearing, you will be given a copy of the hearing record.
This will be the only written notice you will receive of the hearing results.
If you are found liable and wish to request reconsideration of the decision, you must do so within thirty (30)
calendar days of the hearing (Note: DMV must receive your request by day 30.) You must submit your
request either online at DMV’s website, dmv.dc.gov, or by mail to, Adjudication Services, Attn:
Reconsideration, PO Box 37135, Washington, DC 20013.
