Quasi Criminal Help

Often bureaucrats will play this "infraction" or quasi-criminal game at you. Here is a page to post or read citations of statute of case law that will help you predict what types of rules apply in this confusing area.

If you can't find information otherwise, a good rule of thumb is to ask for the burden of proof.
Generally criminal rules will have a burden beyond a reasonable doubt.
While where civil or no specific rules apply, the burden will be with a preponderance of evidence.

Also another distinction to look at is pleas. Do the bureaucrats ask you to plead guilty or not, or responsible or not.
Guilty is a traditionally criminal plea, while responsible is a traditionally civil plea.
