The administrative traffic caseload for 1999 includes all filings that are processed through the clerk of court offices. Previous caseloads reflected case disposition statistics obtained from the Department of Transportation. This data did not include all administrative traffic dispositions. The 48.12% increase in filings is due to this new method of counting cases filed. When the same case filings are counted for 1998 the increase is .5%.
While administrative traffic cases make up 57.4% of the overall filings, these cases require minimal judicial involvement. The processing time required impacts clerk personnel almost exclusively.
