Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

This means they are reducing it from a state traffic offense, which is a misdemeanor, to a municipal infraction, which is a fine only and typically has a lesser fine and no jail time associated with the offense. It is not considered a traffic misdemeanor, it is a city infraction, like a parking ticket.
