Procedure for Disposition of Traffic Tickets

The following information pertains to traffic tickets issued by police officers who charge non-criminal offenses under the Vehicle and Traffic Law or Transportation Law.

The following information does NOT apply to misdemeanor charges under the Vehicle and Traffic Law which include Driving While Impaired or Intoxicated (Vehicle and Traffic Law 1192), Reckless Driving (Vehicle and Traffic Law 1212), Aggravated Unlicensed Operation (Vehicle and Traffic Law 511), Suspended Registration (Vehicle and Traffic Law 512). Such charges, together with traffic charges issued at the same time, are prosecuted by the District Attorney in criminal court.

When a traffic ticket is issued to an operator or owner of a motor vehicle, such person must enter a plea of "Guilty" or Not Guilty" on or before the Court date appearing on the traffic ticket.

IS NOT NECESSARY TO APPEAR IN COURT ON THE DATE LISTED ON THE TRAFFIC TICKET.

THE POLICE OFFICER WHO ISSUED THE TICKET IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE IN COURT ON THE DATE LISTED ON THE TICKET.

To plead "Guilty" check the appropriate box on the ticket, sign your name in the space provided and return the ticket to the Court. You will be notified by mail the amount of the fine and the date on which the fine is due.

To plead "Not Guilty", check the appropriate box on the ticket, sign your name in the space provided and return the ticket to the Court. If you request a Supporting Deposition from the Police Officer who issued the ticket, check the applicable box. You will be notified of a court date by mail.

On the date and time scheduled for traffic court you may, but are not required to, speak with the Town Prosecutor to discuss a disposition of the charges by agreement. If you and the Town Prosecutor are unable to agree to a disposition, the case will be scheduled for trial to be held at a future date.

Payment of Fines and Mandatory Surcharges

In addition to the imposition of a fine upon conviction of traffic infractions, New York State Law requires the imposition of a Mandatory Surcharge. The amount of the Mandatory Surcharge varies and depends on the date and nature of the offense.

Payment of fines, whether in person or by mail, must be by cash, money order or credit card (Master Card or Visa). The Court does not accept personal checks.
