Dress Code: While there is no official dress code, it is important that you dress neatly and always conduct yourself in a respectful manner with the court. Many judges frown upon litigants wearing shorts, open toe sandals, and other similar items.
Guilty Plea: A plea of guilty to the charge is equivalent to a conviction after trial. A conviction will not only subject the driver to a penalty but in addition the driver’s license to drive can be subject to suspension and revocation as prescribed by law.
Burden of Proof: Unlike traffic matters heard in the Traffic Violations Bureau of NYC and other parts of the State, tickets in Town and Village Courts must meet the standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
