To the Honorable District Justice XXXXXXXXX:
I have enclosed the portion of the traffic citation with my plea. I wish to ask for the courts consideration with the scheduling of the trial. I am employed by XXXXXXXXXX in XXXXXX, as a power line worker. Due to the terms of my employment, I am not awarded vacation time until June 23rd, and work a weekly schedule of 7:00 am until 3:30 pm. XXXXXX has deemed line workers as essential crew employees, and I am unable to take off during the middle of the work day. Therefore, if it is possible to schedule the trial after 3:30pm, I will be very appreciative. I believe I have a good case, and I look forward to presenting it in order to prove my innocence in this matter.
However, if it is at all possible to save both the court and myself the time and expense associated with a trial, I wish to formally request a lesser plea under Title 75 Pa. C. S. § 3111(A). As a holder of a commercial driver’s license, I am primarily concerned about the points carried by the citation I received. This is the first time in my driving record that I have received a speeding citation, despite driving over 30,000 miles just last year. I hope my record will speak for myself in saying that I am a safe driver, and allow you to extend leniency in this matter.
I wish to thank you for your time and consideration.
