Re-Appeal Citation

If you would like to contest an appeal decision, USD offers a re-appeal process, which is overseen by Associated Students. Reappeals must be submitted within 14 days of the Appeals Committee response. To qualify for a re-appeal you must pay your citation fine in full and submit a request for re-appeal within 14 days of your first level appeal results. Please request all re-appeals at least 2 workdays prior to the re-appeal court date. If you would like to schedule a re-appeal, please submit your re-appeal request.

Please note, if there is no proof of payment, your re-appeal will be denied. You must bring with you a photo ID, proof of payment, the citation information (citation number), and your reason for re-appealing with any additional information, documents, etc. to your re-appeal hearing to help expedite the appeals process. Your re-appeal does not guarantee any change to the primary results from the first level of appeals.

The Traffic Court will only guarantee a minimum of 10 re-appeals per court session. It is your responsibility to be on time and present or you will risk being skipped. If there are no scheduled re-appeals by the last scheduled appointment, the committee will have the right to terminate the traffic court early. Please make sure you arrive on time or you will forfeit your right to re-appeal for that citation.

*Your right to re-appeal is waived if the scheduled traffic court date is missed without 24 hour cancellation.
