Result n/a
Remarks FAILED - Other schools have higher fines. Deferred adjudication would be too cumbersome. Many other schools do not even waive the first violation.
Whereas During the Summer break of 1998, the Police Department announced increasing the number of violations written; and
Whereas The Police department waive one fine per semester with good reason; and
Whereas The TX Municipal Courts give deferred adjudication for Motor Violations.
Be It Further Resolved That The Police Department give the second violation 30 days deferred adjudication; if no other violations are commited during this period, the violation will be dismissed, or if violated the student will have to pay for the fine plus a new fine.
