Ch. Trans 114 Note Note: Chapter Trans 114 was created as an emergency rule effective 5-1-89; chapter MVD 21 as it existed on December 31, 1989, was repealed and a new chapter Trans 114 was created effective 1-1-90.
Trans 114.01 Trans 114.01 Purpose and scope. As authorized by s. 345.11 (4), Stats., the purpose of this chapter is to establish a uniform traffic citation form and to provide a mechanism for field testing future revisions to the uniform traffic citation form as proposed by the council on uniformity of traffic citations and complaints.
Trans 114.01 History History: Cr. Register, December, 1989, No. 408, eff. 1-1-90.
Trans 114.02 Trans 114.02 Definitions. The words and phrases defined in ss. 340.01 and 343.01, Stats., and ch. 345, Stats., have the same meaning in this chapter unless a different meaning is expressly provided or the context clearly indicates a different meaning. In this chapter:
Trans 114.02(1) (1) "Automated citation" means an automated uniform traffic citation described in s. 345.11 (2), Stats., created on a computer and printed on paper in the format prescribed by this chapter, rather than on a preprinted citation form.
Trans 114.02(2) (2) "Field test" means to utilize a prototype traffic citation form among a representative number of law enforcement jurisdictions that volunteer to field test it.
Trans 114.02(3) (3) "Prototype uniform traffic citation form" means a form created by the secretary's council on uniformity of traffic citations and complaints, which serves as a model for field testing and against which the secretary's council bases its recommendations for improvements when drafting the final version of the uniform traffic citation form.
Trans 114.02(4) (4) "Field test jurisdiction" means a law enforcement jurisdiction which volunteers to field test a prototype uniform traffic citation form.
Trans 114.02 History History: Cr. Register, December, 1989, No. 408, eff. 1-1-90; CR 02-153: am. (intro.), renum. (1) to (3) to be (2) to (4) and am. (2), cr. (1) Register June 2003 No. 570, eff. 7-1-03.
Trans 114.03 Trans 114.03 Uniform traffic citation form use. A prototype uniform traffic citation form may be used in field tests for the purpose of evaluating the changes authorized under s. 345.11, Stats., and to allow for input by affected parties toward the final design of the uniform traffic citation form. The prototype uniform traffic citation form will be used in lieu of the current traffic citation form in the field test jurisdictions during the field test. However, use of the prototype uniform traffic citation form does not invalidate the use of the current uniform traffic citation in the field test jurisdictions or in any other jurisdiction during the field test period.

Trans 114.07 Trans 114.07 Use of uniform traffic citation.
Trans 114.07(1) (1) Law enforcement agencies may use any of the uniform traffic citation forms that have been printed and are in use or storage, until stores of printed forms are consumed.
Trans 114.07(2) (2) All uniform traffic citation forms printed after July 1, 2003 shall conform to the form requirements of s. Trans 114.06.
Trans 114.07 Note Note: At the time the Uniform Traffic Citation was initially created, different jurisdictions printed and used different forms. Use of those forms was prohibited and remains prohibited. Subsequent changes to the uniform traffic citation, however, are largely cosmetic and have been made for convenience of law enforcement, the courts and the Department. All uniform traffic citation forms provide the essential information needed by a defendant, the courts and DOT. Therefore, this chapter permits old stores of forms to be used as a cost-saving measure for law enforcement agencies. Using up old stores of forms also helps to prevent misuse of discarded forms.
