Instructions To Accept Reduction Of Charge By Mail
If you would like to take advantage of the reduced charge offer, please follow these instructions:
Please remember that all waivers received are subject to the Court's approval.
Upon receipt of the waiver form, the Court will send you a notice of fine and surcharge with information on how to pay and when the money is due.
Please note that the fine for any traffic infraction is set by the judge, following mandatory New York State guidelines. The fines increase with each speed category. Therefore, by making a plea to a reduced charge, you are allowing the judge to impose a fine from within a lower fine category, although it is always within the Court's discretion to determine where to set the fine within the range set by law. The surcharge is set by the State.
If you have further questions regarding the amount of your fine, please contact the Court.
Remember to include your current address for the Court, because if the Court cannot reach you at the address you have given, your license will be suspended.
