How do I answer a traffic ticket?
There are two ways to answer a traffic ticket.

1) You can plea by mail. Be very careful to follow all instructions as indicted on the back of the summons. The court will then contact you by mail with further instructions.

2) Appear in person at Schenectady City Police Court on the date and time indicated on the bottom of the ticket.

** Be advised that it is very important to answer the ticket. Failure to do so can result in the suspension of you driver's license or driving privliges and a warrant may be issued for your arrest.
