Failure to respond to the notice may result in a Penalty Assessment Notice being authorized by the Denver Police Department. This Penalty Assessment Notice will be personally served by a process server and will result in a service fee of at least $29.00. If a Penalty Assessment Notice is served you will be required to appear in court unless payment is received 5 business days prior to the respond by/arraignment date listed on the Penalty Assessment Notice.
The respond by/arraignment date is listed on the served Penalty Assessment Notice. This respond by date is your arraignment date. You will need to pay the fine and costs including the personal service fee, submit a not pictured driver affidavit or nominate the driver (not required to) within 5 business days of the respond by/arraignment date. If you wish to plead not guilty you need to go to the Denver County Court, Room 109 by 5:00 PM on the respond by date.
You may sign and mail in the Not Pictured Driver Affidavit located on the back of your Notice of Violation or Penalty Assessment Notice. You must submit a legible, clear photocopy of your driver’s license with the Not Pictured Driver Affidavit. The affidavit and supporting documentation will be reviewed by a Denver Police Department employee and a determination will be made regarding the identity of the actual driver. If further information is required, you may be contacted by the Photo Enforcement Unit. In most cases you will be notified by mail of the outcome of the Denver Police Department review.
You are not required to nominate (or identify) the driver in order to have your Not Pictured Affidavit reviewed by the Denver Police Department.
If you choose to nominate the driver, the Nomination Affidavit information is reviewed by a Denver Police Department employee. If it is accepted, the notice of violation against you will be cancelled and placed in the name of the person nominated. If a Penalty Assessment Notice was served and/or filed in the Denver County Court, the Denver Police Department will submit a motion via our City Attorney to dismiss the case against you and the Notice of Violation or Penalty Assessment Notice will be issued to the individual you nominated.
If the Nomination Affidavit is not accepted, the Notice of Violation will remain in your name. If you set your case for final hearing and your nomination of another driver is not accepted, a Photo Enforcement Agent will appear on the day of final hearing.
