The procedure to resolve vehicle and traffic infractions in the local court is to first determine the level of severity of the ticket.
If any one or all of the tickets issued by the officer are marked "misdemeanor," you must appear in Court on the appearance date indicated to be arraigned by the Justice.
If the ticket(s) issued are marked "infraction," no appearance in Court on the appearance date is necessary. You must fill out the area provided on your ticket, entering your plea either "guilty" or "not guilty," and return it to the Court within 48 hours, noting your current mailing address. You will then be notified in writing by the Court.
