Liability for citations ultimately rests with the registered owner.
The registered owner has the right to identify the person who was in care, custody or control of the vehicle at the time of the speeding violation. The registered owner must provide:
• A sworn written statement sent certified mail / Return Receipt Requested
• The citation number
• Any other corroborating evidence, which may include the name, address, and driver’s license number of the person driving the vehicle at the time of the violation.
Request must be sent to City of Hyattsville Speed Program, P.O. Box 1877 Hyattsville, MD 21203.
NOTE: If the identified driver does not satisfy the ticket, the registered owner is still ultimately responsible. The registered owner will be subject to further action to include vehicle registration flagging and collections.
