How to deal with traffic tickets and fines

A ticketed vehicle can recieve a new ticket after every two hours at the same violated meter!

If you have received a Parking or Moving violations ticket, the first thing to do is to calm  down. Your first ticket will undoubtedly have your heart beating fast.  Now read the ticket VERY carefully. All the information you need to act on is on the ticket.  You have to decide either to plead guilty or not, and where to mail or take the ticket to for resolution. Not all tickets (Nassau County) will go to cooper street in Hempstead. Many tickets can be resolved at your local village hall. If you are not sure how much to pay or where to mail the ticket call this number: 516-572-2700 (Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency) or your local village hall.
