How do I contest my ticket?
If you want to plead not guilty and request a trial, you must come to court. The court date listed on your ticket is a first appearance date, not a trial date. There are hundreds of people at first appearances, so please be prepared to wait. At your first appearance date, you may plead "not guilty" and request a trial date. The Judge will assign you a trial date. Trials take place on Thursday mornings.
