If you fail to request the Administrative Hearing within 21 days you will lose the opportunity to further contest the citation.
To request an Administrative Hearing you must appear in person at the Pomona Police Department’s Traffic Services Bureau during normal business hours and a hearing will be scheduled at that time.
