I just want to mail in the ticket and pay the fine. What is the process?
Follow the procedures written on the back of your ticket. There are no set fines in New York State therefore we will be contacting you as to the amount of your fine.

What if I can not read my ticket as to date or court?
 Immediately contact the police agency that issued the ticket. They will gladly advise you as to the proper date and court.
What if I disagree with the charges on the ticket?
The court is the judicial branch that interprets the law. Show up at the scheduled time and date to plea your case. Your options will then be explained.
How do I know if I need an attorney?
If you are unsure of the charges or how to proceed then you may need to consult an attorney. However, this is an individual decision.
