Answering a Traffic Ticket
How do I answer my traffic ticket?
You may have received a hand-written ticket or a computer-generated ticket. It is the obligation of the receiving motorist to respond to the ticket. If the charges are NOT MISDEMEANORS you can either appear on the date listed on the bottom of the ticket or you may complete section A or B on the ticket to indicate your plea of either guilty or not guilty. You then mail the entire ticket to the court:
Town of Triangle Court

If you fail to respond your license may be suspended.
Upon a plea of guilty, a fine and New York State mandated surcharge may be assessed and you will be notified by mail of the amount due and the instructions on how to make payment. Upon a plea of not guilty, you will be sent further information on how to proceed. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, you must appear in person on the date and time listed on the ticket.
