There are a sizable number of speeding tickets issued within the jurisdictional boundaries of Ripley Town Court.  This is due in part to the numerous police agencies that have the jurisdictional power to issue traffic summons in this town as well as the town’s proximity to the western end of the New York State Thruway.  The court has the power to adjudicate civil matters such as landlord tenant cases, zoning code violations, and monetary disputes.  The court’s jurisdiction is not unlimited.  There are many courts of higher jurisdiction such as the County Court, Supreme Court, and Appellate Court.  In general, the civil matters heard in Ripley would be commonly referred to as small claims cases.  With respect to traffic cases, the court has the power to preside over all Vehicle Traffic Law cases except felony matters.  Although some felony matters can be heard in town court, for the most part, felonies are heard in County Court.  Traffic matters can include speeding tickets, texting while driving tickets, and stop sign violations.

There is a court date on the front of my ticket and the back of my ticket says I have 48 hours to respond. Which one do I follow?

Technically, you have 48 hours from the time your ticket is issued to enter a plea of not guilty by mail. 

Is the date on the front of my ticket my court date?

Ultimately, the date on the front of your ticket may be your court date but for the most part, it is your respond by date.

What happens if I fail to respond to my speeding ticket?

Failing to respond can result in your license being suspended.  Driving with a suspended license can be charged as a crime.  You can be arrested and subject to incarceration.

Can you give me a guarantee of your result?
