The Fulton County District Attorney's Office

Please fill out and follow the instructions on the traffic reduction request form.

When your letter is received by the District Attorney’s Office, complete with all of the requirements listed on the traffic reduction form, it will be reviewed and a written offer will be mailed to you.

If you choose to accept the offer from the District Attorney’s office SIGN THE FORM AND RETURN IT TO THE COURT. The address for the court is on the lower half of the traffic ticket. If you chose not to accept the offer, contact the court to schedule a trial.
