- If you received a ticket and the charge on the ticket is a MISDEMEANOR, or a third or subsequent speed in an 18-month period, you MUST appear IN PERSON of the date listed on the bottom left hand side of the ticket.
- If you received a ticket which can be returned by mail, please be sure to review all information and instructions printed on your ticket(s). It is your obligation to enter a plea to each ticket, on or by the return date on the ticket, and to make sure the Court receives that plea. Please include your current mailing address.
Although you are not required to have an attorney, you have a right to have representation at every step of the proceedings.
To plead GUILTY by mail, complete and sign Section A of your ticket. Once the Court receives your plea, the judge will impose a sentence which could consist of a fine. Also imposed would be the NY State mandated surcharge. A fine notice will be mailed to you stating the amount due as well as acceptable methods for payment, and NYS DMV will be notified of your plea so they may assess any points or other penalties separate from the Court.
To plead NOT GUILTY by mail, complete and sign Section B of your ticket. After the Court receives your plea, a letter explaining your options on how to resolve your ticket will be mailed to you giving you a CONTROL DATE by which one of those options will need to be pursued.
There is no initial amount to pay on a NYS traffic ticket. The judge assesses the penalty once a plea of GUILTY has been entered to the original charge or to a reduced charge, or should you be found guilty after trial.
A Supporting Deposition is a detailed account from the officer regarding the issued ticket. The officer may have given you the supporting deposition with the ticket. It could be attached to the ticket as one long piece of paper, or the officer may have separated it from the ticket.
