Answering a Traffic Ticket

The Broome County District Attorney’s Office offers two choices for handling your traffic ticket(s) without the need to appear in court. Either option needs to be used AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR TRIAL DATE. You will need a copy of your ticket(s) or trial notice to apply for either option, if you do not have a copy then you must contact the court. If you apply for either option later than two weeks prior to your trial date, your request will likely be denied, and you will have to attend your trial.
