Useful Tips 

Tip: If you have plead not guilty and are preparing to go to court please bring your court notice and your driving record. The court notice will help the court personnel direct you to where you need to go and what you need to do. Your driving record, if it is clean, can help you quickly mitigate the situation. 

Dress Code: While the court has no official dress code, it is very important that you present yourself in a professional and respectful manner. Judges often frown upon those individuals that come into court with shorts, tank tops, open-toed sandals, and other similar items.

Law of the Land: When you first enter the court you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer, for security reasons. Please switch off all electronic devices and leave any weapons or sharp objects at home. Also, leave all food and drinks outside the court, they will not be permitted into the court. 

Suspension: If you have a suspended license, please do not drive your vehicle. It is a crime to drive with a suspended license. If you are pulled over, the officer can impound your car and suspend you. 

Ticket Tidbits 

A traffic ticket can be issued by various police agencies which may include the State Police, the local police, Park Police, and Sheriff's office. 

New York State police officers use a Uniform Traffic Ticket, also known as a UTT. The UTT provides you with a lot of important information.
