I Received a Traffic Ticket, what do I do?

You must complete the right side of the ticket pleading guilty or not guilty and return it to this court by the date noted on the lower left side.

  • If you plead guilty you will receive a fine notice in the mail.
  • If you plead not guilty we will forward your ticket to the Town Prosecutor who will be contacting you by mail. If you receive a plea offer you must “accept” or “reject” it, sign it and return it to this court.
  • Once you have accepted and returned the form, you will receive a fine notice by mail.
  • If you “reject” the plea – you will be scheduled an appearance. This requires an appearance by you or a legal representative on your behalf.
