    Fact Sheet: Driver Accountability Program

    The Driver Accountability Program is available to individuals who are charged with driving related offenses in criminal court. It serves as an alternative to fines or jail, or as a pre-condition of dismissal or reduction in charges for vehicular offenses such as reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, driving with a suspended license, and failure to yield to a pedestrian.
