    how will this apply to commercially registered vehicles, or leased / rented vehicles where there are multiple different drivers of the vehicle, and the vehicle is registered to a company opposed to an individual?

    If the registered owner of the vehicle is a corporation, who will be required to complete the safety course? If the vehicle is registered out of state how will you enforce compliance?

    what happens if the violations are not adjudicated and the respondent just pays the violation?
