Traffic Tickets

What do I do if I get a traffic ticket?

You do not have to appear in court, unless your ticket is a misdemeanor charge. If you wish to plead GUILTY you may sign and date PART A on the ticket, mail it in and the court will mail a fine notice back to you. If you choose to plead NOT GUILTY you may sign and date PART B on the ticket, mail it in and the court will schedule a pre-trial conference. Responses need to be received by the court appearance date given on the traffic ticket.

What do I do if I get a suspension notice?

 

You should immediatly contact the court to determine the reason for the suspension. If your fine is paid after your suspension date there is a $70.00 fee to lift your suspension in addition to any fine that may have been assessed in regards to the original violation.

How can I pay my fine?

You may submit a money order or certified check (no personal checks) made out to NYACK JUSTICE COURT either in person or by mail. Or you may pay in cash at the office. No credit card payments by phone are accepted.
