When the Defendant Satisfies the Citation
The Court Action Report contains four copies. The original copy is sent to the department of safety as notification that the defendant failed to appear. When the defendant satisfies the citation, an additional entry is made on the remaining copies indicating that the citation has been satisfied. The second copy of the form is sent to the department of safety, the third copy is given to the defendant, and the last copy is filed with the original citation.
