Forty-four cases fell under the category of “traffic,” with 41 disposed through forfeitures, three were dismissed; two cases fell under the category of “OWI/BAC,” both were disposed through forfeitures. Six cases fell under the category of “Adult non-traffic,” and were disposed through forfeiture, and six fell within the category of “Juvenile non-traffic,” five of which were disposed through forfeiture and one case was dismissed.
