Jefferson County Attorney's Traffic Safety Program

Mike O'Connell, Jefferson County Attorney

As Jefferson County Attorney, I have implemented Drive Safe Louisville to provide a convenient, interactive way to resolve traffic tickets, without going to court. If you are eligible, Drive Safe Louisville allows you to review traffic laws and safe driving habits in the comfort of home, at your own pace, while increasing your awareness of driving and traffic safety. Complete the program and you will have no points against your license and no conviction of a traffic ticket on your driving record.

Most moving violations are considered for the program; however, the Jefferson County Attorney reserves the right to exclude applicants based on the seriousness of the violation, criminal history, and/or the number of past violations. Participants pay an administrative fee of $179.00 after being approved and no other fees or costs are assessed. As explained on the back of your citation, prepaying your fine and court costs is equivalent to pleading guilty, and it is not part of the process for Drive Safe Louisville.

If you would like to be considered for the Drive Safe Louisville program, register below using your citation number where indicated. If you qualify for the program, you will be notified in an email within four days of your registration. It is important that you plan your time wisely because the program must be completed no later than 72 hours (3 days) before your court date.

If you are under the age of 18, before you can participate in the program, Kentucky law requires that you appear in court with the parent or guardian that signed for your license.

You may be eligible if you were charged with:

  • Speeding 25 over the limit or less (Does not include speeding in work or school zones)
  • Careless driving (Must appear in court to see if you qualify if you received this charge)
  • Improper passing/Improper signal/Improper turning
  • Disregarding a stop sign/Disregarding traffic control device or traffic light
  • Driving too fast for traffic conditions/Driving too slow for conditions
  • Failure to yield right-of-way (Does not include failure to yield to pedestrians or emergency vehicles)
  • Improper lane usage/vehicles keep right except to pass
  • Following another vehicle too closely
  • Wrong way on a one-way-street
  • Seat belt violation (Does not include Booster Seat violations or Child Restraint violations)
  • Texting/Communication Device Violation

You will not be eligible if:

  • You were driving without a valid unrestricted operator's license
  • You were driving without valid insurance
  • You have participated in a county attorney traffic safety program within two years
  • You have a CDL (commercial driver license)
