VECHICLE AND TRAFFIC:

Cases charging the commission of a traffic infraction are filed in the East Fishkill Justice Court if the alleged offense took place in our Town. Information regarding how to proceed with a traffic ticket may be found on the back of the ticket issued to the motorist. It is the obligation of the motorist to respond to the ticket. After the court receives notification that a defendant is pleading not guilty, the office of the Court Clerk will schedule a trial. At trial, the officer who issued the summons will prosecute the case. A plea of guilty will result in a fine letter, which will instruct the defendant on procedure and amount of payment.
