Security: Please remember that the court is a secure place; as such you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer. Turn off all electronic devices and leave all food and drinks outside the court.

There are many different police agencies who have the authority to issue a traffic ticket. Some of these agencies include but are not limited to, the State Police, Park Police, Sheriff’s Office, and Town/Village Police.
New York State Police use a Uniform Traffic Ticket, also known as a “UTT”. The UTT provides a lot of important information; such as the date and place of the occurrence, what you are charged with, the officer’s name, and instructions on how to enter your plea.
Tickets often carry a potential to cost hundreds in fines, penalties, hassle, and insurance increases. Currently, a guilty plea to a 86/55 mph could cost driver close to $700.00 in fines, an additional $450.00 in penalties, and insurance increases. Given the right additional set of facts and circumstances, there is potential to receive the more serious penalties of a suspended license and being sent to jail.About Our Firm
