A program created by the government to help "troubled teens" who find themselves in a position to getting a charge against them. to keep them "out of the court" the kids are accepted into a diversion program. Through the whole thing, the government, the teens and the parents waste a whole lot of time and whole of tax dollars, ameliorating absolutely nothing. When getting a ticket would have been a better option in the first place.

Teen #2: Oh, dont worry dude, we just got diversion.
Teen#1: OHHH NOOO!
Teen #3: Duuuude, im just gonna go to court, like a smart kid.
