Each New York Traffic Court Is Closed: What To Do If You Have An Open NY Traffic Ticket Or Suspension?

Due to COVID-19, each New York traffic court is closed including all eight New York City Traffic Violation Bureau locations will be closed for, at least, 30 days.  There are eight Traffic Violations Bureau offices run by the DMV in New York City.  Each other city, town and village have their own traffic courts, including the Suffolk County Traffic Violations & Parking Agency and the Nassau County Traffic Violations & Parking Agency, and those also have closed.
In New York City, for many cases, those with pending suspensions for missed dates  or scofflaw notices have been automatically scheduled for April 20, 2020.  If you think you have been suspended, you may be in luck.   If you want to confirm, call our office as we can run your record and check on the status of any NYC traffic ticket.
If you have an open ticket, your court date will be re-scheduled.  If you have an suspension, you’re likely going to remain suspended until things normalize.  For those with scofflaw notices, you may have gotten lucky and had your case scheduled (or re-scheduled) without a suspension.
Weiss & Associates, PC is available to help you check, or if you need help fighting any New York traffic ticket.  Call us at 212-683-7373.  Our office remains open (with our staff working from remotely).

  • I received two tickets (one for failing to yield to pedestrian and one for improper turn), but the officer recorded my license plate number incorrectly on the tickets. I wrote a letter to the Department of Finance and included a copy of my registration showing the correct license plate number, but I haven’t heard anything back. The court date is May 2021. How do I follow up?

      Brian,

      The wrong plate number does not render a moving violation ticket fatally defective. At your May 2021 hearing, you should argue this point but likely will need additional arguments to prevail. Good luck!

      Julius Williams,

      If it is a NYC ticket, then you’ll have to wait until the traffic court re-opens (currently in early July).

      Arn,

      If you do not answer your speeding ticket, then you will (eventually) be found guilty by default and your license will be suspended.

      We strongly recommend that you do not ignore your ticket.
