There are 2 ways to plead to a traffic ticket, non-misdemeanor offenses only:

  • Plea of Guilty:  Sign the “guilty” section on your ticket which is Part A and mail it to the court.  The Court will then notify you by mail as to your fine and/ or surcharge.  Remember to keep a copy of the ticket for your records.
  • Plea of Not Guilty:  Sign the “Not Guilty” section on your ticket, which is Part B and mail it to the court.  The Court will then notify you by mail as to your trial date.  Remember to keep a copy of the ticket for your records.

Please keep in mind that the appearance date on your ticket is only your date to enter a plea, and not your trial date. **Be sure to always include a complete, correct mailing address for the court!**

If you have been suspended for failure to appear:  This means you have to enter a plea to the ticket.  You should contact the court for the best way to proceed.

If you have been suspended for failure to pay:  This means you have failed to pay the fine/surcharge amount that was assessed by the Court.  You should contact the Court for the exact amount that is owed after the suspension is in effect.

The surcharge is a mandatory fee imposed by the State of New York that must be paid on every ticket.

The charge will be dismissed if proof is presented to the court that the defect was corrected within 24 hours after the issuance of the summons.
