punished by a fine may also provide for the payment to be made within
a specified time or in specified installments.  A judgment granting
a defendant time to pay the fine shall order that if the defendant

is due, he or she shall appear in court on that date for further
proceedings.  Willful violation of the order is punishable as
contempt.
   (b) A judgment that a person convicted of any other violation of

these cases, the judgment shall specify the extent of the
imprisonment which shall not exceed one day for every thirty dollars
() of the fine, nor extend in this case beyond the term for which
the defendant might be sentenced to imprisonment for the offense of
which he or she was convicted.
   (c) In any case when a person appears before a traffic referee or
judge of the superior court for adjudication of a violation of this
code, the court, upon request of the defendant, shall consider the
defendant's ability to pay.  Consideration of a defendant's ability
to pay may include his or her future earning capacity.  A defendant
shall bear the burden of demonstrating lack of his or her ability to
pay.  Express findings by the court as to the factors bearing on the
amount of the fine shall not be required.  The reasonable cost of
these services and of probation shall not exceed the amount
determined to be the actual average cost thereof.  The court shall
order the defendant to appear before a county officer designated by
the court to make an inquiry into the ability of the defendant to pay
all or a portion of those costs or the court or traffic referee may
make this determination at a hearing.  At that hearing, the defendant
shall be entitled to have, but shall not be limited to, the
opportunity to be heard in person, to present witnesses and other
documentary evidence, to confront and cross-examine adverse
witnesses, to disclosure of the evidence against him or her, and to a
written statement of the findings of the court or the county
officer.  If the court determines that the defendant has the ability
to pay all or part of the costs, the court shall set the amount to be
reimbursed and order the defendant to pay that sum to the county in
the manner in which the court believes reasonable and compatible with
the defendant's financial ability; or, with the consent of a
defendant who is placed on probation, the court shall order the
probation officer to set the amount of payment, which shall not
exceed the maximum amount set by the court, and the manner in which
the payment shall be made to the county.  In making a determination
of whether a defendant has the ability to pay, the court shall take
into account the amount of any fine imposed upon the defendant and
any amount the defendant has been ordered to pay in restitution.
   The court may hold additional hearings during the probationary
period.  If practicable, the court or the probation officer shall
order payments to be made on a monthly basis.  Execution may be
issued on the order in the same manner as a judgment in a civil
action.  The order to pay all or part of the costs shall not be
enforced by contempt.
   A payment schedule for reimbursement of the costs of presentence
investigation based on income shall be developed by the probation
department of each county and approved by the presiding judge of the
superior court.
   (d) The term "ability to pay" means the overall capability of the
defendant to reimburse the costs, or a portion of the costs, of
conducting the presentence investigation, preparing the presentence
report, and probation, and includes, but is not limited to, all of
the following regarding the defendant:
   (1) Present financial position.
   (2) Reasonably discernible future financial position.  In no event
shall the court consider a period of more than six months from the
date of the hearing for purposes of determining reasonably
discernible future financial position.
   (3) Likelihood that the defendant will be able to obtain
employment within the six-month period from the date of the hearing.

   (4) Any other factors that may bear upon the defendant's financial
capability to reimburse the county for the costs.
   (e) At any time during the pendency of the judgment rendered
according to the terms of this section, a defendant against whom a
judgment has been rendered may petition the rendering court to modify
or vacate its previous judgment on the grounds of a change of
circumstances with regard to the defendant's ability to pay the
judgment.  The court shall advise the defendant of this right at the
time of rendering of the judgment.



42004.  For the purpose of determining the penalty to be imposed
pursuant to this code, the court may consider a written report from
the Department of Motor Vehicles containing information from its
records showing prior convictions; and the communication is prima
facie evidence of such convictions, if the defendant admits them,
regardless of whether or not the complaint commencing the proceedings
has alleged prior convictions.
   For the purpose of this chapter a prior bail forfeiture shall be
deemed to be a conviction of the offense charged.



42004.5.  Upon conviction of any violation of any provision of this
code, other than a felony violation and except this section,
execution of sentence of imprisonment in the county jail shall be
suspended, at the request of the convicted person, for a period of 24
hours, unless the judge determines that the person would not return.
  If, prior to the end of such period, the person does not deliver
himself into custody for commencement of the execution of such
sentence, his failure to appear shall constitute a misdemeanor.



42005.  (a) The court may order or permit a person convicted of a
traffic violation to attend a traffic violator school licensed
pursuant to Chapter 1.5 (commencing with Section 11200) of Division
5.
   (b) In lieu of adjudicating a traffic offense committed by a
person who holds a noncommercial class C, class M1, or class M2
driver's license, and with the consent of the defendant, the court
may order the person to attend a licensed traffic violator school, a
licensed driving school, or any other court-approved program or
driving instruction.
   (c) Pursuant to Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the
court may not order or permit a person who holds a class A, class B,
or commercial class C driver's license to complete a licensed traffic
violator school, a licensed driving school, or any other
court-approved program of driving instruction in lieu of adjudicating
any traffic offense committed by the holder of a class A, class B,
or commercial class C driver's license.
   (d) The court may not order or permit a person, regardless of the
driver's license class, to complete a licensed traffic violator
school, a licensed driving school, or any other court-approved
program of driving instruction in lieu of adjudicating an offense if

   (e) Except as otherwise provided in subdivision (f), a person so

instructional services to traffic violators referred by the court
pursuant to a pretrial diversion program, the courts may restrict
referrals under this section to those schools for traffic violators
or licensed driving schools that are under contract with the court or

persons referred pursuant to subdivision (a).
   (g) A county described in Section 28023 of the Government Code may

traffic violator school to instead participate in a study of traffic
violator schools licensed pursuant to Chapter 1.5 (commencing with
Section 11200) of Division 5.  The person's participation in that
study constitutes attending a court-supervised program of traffic
safety instruction for purposes of Section 42007.



42005.3.  Operative January 1, 1993, no local authority may allow a
person who is alleged to have committed a traffic offense in
violation of this code or an ordinance or resolution adopted under
this code, to participate in a driver awareness or education program
or in any other diversion program as an alternative to the procedure
required to be followed under this code for alleged violations of
this code.
   This section does not apply to diversion programs for minors who
commit infractions not involving a motor vehicle for which no fee is
charged.


42005.5.  Notwithstanding Section 46300 or 84500 of the Education
Code or any other provision of law, on and after September 1, 1985,
attendance at a school for traffic violators ordered pursuant to
Section 42005 shall not be included in computing the average daily
attendance of any school district, community college district, or
other public educational institution for purposes of allocation of
state funds.



42006.  (a) Except as provided in subdivision (c), there may be
levied a special assessment in an amount equal to one dollar () for
every fine, forfeiture, and traffic violator school fee imposed and
collected by any court that conducts a night or weekend session of
the court, on all offenses involving a violation of a section of this
code or any local ordinance adopted pursuant to this code, except
offenses relating to parking.
   (b) When a person makes a deposit of bail for an offense to which
this section applies, in a case in which the person is required to
appear in a court that conducts a night or weekend session, the
person making the deposit shall also deposit a sufficient amount to
include the assessment prescribed in this section for forfeited bail.
If bail is forfeited, the amount of the assessment shall be
transmitted by the clerk of the court to the county treasury for
disposition as prescribed by subdivision (d).
   (c) If a court conducts night or weekend sessions at two or more
locations, the court may do either of the following:
   (1) Levy assessments only on those persons who are required to
appear at the location where night or weekend sessions are held.
   (2) Levy assessments on persons who have the option to appear at a
location where night or weekend court sessions are held and that is
within 25 miles of the location of the court where the person is
otherwise required to appear.
   (d) After a determination by the court of the amount of the
assessment due, the clerk of the court shall collect the amount and
transmit it to the county treasury to be deposited in the night court
session fund, and the money in the fund shall be expended by the
county for maintaining courts in the county that have night or
weekend sessions for traffic offenses.
   (e) In any case where a person convicted of any offense to which
this section applies is imprisoned until the fine is satisfied, the
court shall waive the penalty assessment.



42007.  (a) (1) The clerk of the court shall collect a fee from
every person who is ordered or permitted to attend a traffic violator
school pursuant to Section 42005 or who attends any other
court-supervised program of traffic safety instruction. The fee shall
be in an amount equal to the total bail set forth for the eligible
offense on the uniform countywide bail schedule. As used in this
subdivision, "total bail" means the amount established pursuant to
Section 1269b of the Penal Code in accordance with the Uniform
Statewide Bail Schedule adopted by the Judicial Council, including
all assessments, surcharges, and penalty amounts. Where multiple
offenses are charged in a single notice to appear, the "total bail"
is the amount applicable for the greater of the qualifying offenses.
However, the court may determine a lesser fee under this subdivision
upon a showing that the defendant is unable to pay the full amount.
   The fee shall not include the cost, or any part thereof, of
traffic safety instruction offered by the school or other program.
   (2) The clerk may accept from a defendant who is ordered or
permitted to attend traffic violator school a payment of at least 25
percent of the fee required by paragraph (1) upon filing a written
agreement by the defendant to pay the remainder of the fee according
to an installment payment schedule of no more than 90 days as agreed
upon with the court. The Judicial Council shall prescribe the form of
the agreement for payment of the fee in installments. When the
defendant signs the Judicial Council form for payment of the fee in
installments, the court shall continue the case to the date in the
agreement to complete payment of the fee and submit the certificate
of completion of traffic violator school to the court. The clerk
shall collect a fee of up to thirty-five dollars () to cover the
cost of processing an installment payment of the traffic violator
school fee under this paragraph.
   (3) When a defendant fails to make an installment payment of the
fee according to an installment agreement, the court may convert the
fee to bail, declare it forfeited, and report the forfeiture as a
conviction under Section 1803. The court may also charge a failure to
pay under Section 40508 and impose a civil assessment as provided in
Section 1214.1 of the Penal Code or issue an arrest warrant for a
failure to pay.
   (b) Revenues derived from the fee collected under this section
shall be deposited in accordance with Section 68084 of the Government
Code in the general fund of the county and, as may be applicable,
distributed as follows:
   (1) In any county in which a fund is established pursuant to
Section 76100 or 76101 of the Government Code, the sum of one dollar
() for each fund so established shall be deposited with the county
treasurer and placed in that fund.
   (2) In any county that has established a Maddy Emergency Medical
Services Fund pursuant to Section 1797.98a of the Health and Safety
Code, an amount equal to the sum of each two dollars () for every
seven dollars () that would have been collected pursuant to Section
76000 of the Government Code and, commencing January 1, 2009, an
amount equal to the sum of each two dollars () for every ten
dollars () that would have been collected pursuant to Section
76000.5 of the Government Code with respect to those counties to
which that section is applicable shall be deposited in that fund.
Nothing in the act that added this paragraph shall be interpreted in
a manner that would result in either of the following:
   (A) The utilization of penalty assessment funds that had been set
aside, on or before January 1, 2000, to finance debt service on a
capital facility that existed before January 1, 2000.
   (B) The reduction of the availability of penalty assessment
revenues that had been pledged, on or before January 1, 2000, as a
means of financing a facility which was approved by a county board of
supervisors, but on January 1, 2000, is not under construction.
   (3) The amount of the fee that is attributable to Section 70372 of
the Government Code shall be transferred pursuant to subdivision (f)
of that section.
   (c) For fees resulting from city arrests, an amount equal to the
amount of base fines that would have been deposited in the treasury
of the appropriate city pursuant to paragraph (3) of subdivision (b)
of Section 1463.001 of the Penal Code shall be deposited in the
treasury of the appropriate city.
   (d) As used in this section, "court-supervised program" includes,
but is not limited to, any program of traffic safety instruction the
successful completion of which is accepted by the court in lieu of
adjudicating a violation of this code.
   (e) The clerk of the court, in a county that offers traffic school
shall include in any courtesy notice mailed to a defendant for an
offense that qualifies for traffic school attendance the following
statement:

   NOTICE: If you are eligible and decide not to attend traffic
school your automobile insurance may be adversely affected.

   (f) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a county that has
established a Maddy Emergency Medical Services Fund pursuant to
Section 1797.98a of the Health and Safety Code shall not be held
liable for having deposited into the fund, prior to January 1, 2009,
an amount equal to two dollars () for every ten dollars () that
would have been collected pursuant to Section 76000.5 of the
Government Code from revenues derived from traffic violator school
fees collected pursuant to this section.




42007.1.  (a) The fee collected by the clerk pursuant to subdivision
(a) of Section 42007 shall be in an amount equal to the total bail
set forth for the eligible offense on the uniform countywide bail
schedule plus twenty-four dollars ().

allocated to the general fund of that transit district or
transportation commission to be used only for public safety and
public education purposes relating to railroad grade crossings.
   (2) If there is no transit district or transportation commission
providing rail transportation in the area where the offense occurred,

railroad grade crossings.

provide public safety and public education relating to railroad grade
crossings only to the extent that those purposes are funded by the
allocations provided pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2).
   (b) This section does not apply to the additional twenty-four
dollars () collected under subdivision (a) of Section 42007.1.



42007.5.  (a) Notwithstanding paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of
