Defendant's name:
State in detail why attending a civil traffic hearing would be a substantial hardship. A substantial hardship is more than mere inconvenience. Examples of substantial hardship may include residing a considerable distance from the court or having a medical or physical condition that significantly impairs the ability to participate in a hearing.
If the Court grants my request and conducts a documentary hearing, I waive the following rights: to personally appear to present evidence; to review evidence before the hearing (Rule 13(b)); to compel production of any citing officer notes (Rule 13(c)); to testimony under oath (Rule 16(a)); to cross examine the State's witnesses (Rule 16(c)); to present rebuttal evidence Rule 19(d)); to present a closing argument Rule 19(e)); and to immediate delivery of written notice of appeal after the imposition of any civil sanction (Rule 25(a)).
I acknowledge that if the Court does not receive my declaration of the facts by the hearing date, a default judgment may be entered against me, a civil sanction may be imposed, and my driving privileges may be suspended.
