Uniformed Traffic Infractions issued by police, require that the motorist must first submit the ticket(s) to the court with a plea by the assigned deadline stated on the ticket (Indicated as: "Must Appear in Person or By Mail") with a date and time assigned by the issuing officer. 

Please fill out Section A or Section B on each ticket infraction received, before submitting a plea, read the ticket in its entirety and be aware of which boxes are checked off on your traffic summons. 

NOT everything on a traffic summons may pertain to the motorist.  Uniformed Traffic Ticket (UTT) is meant to encompass Violations, Misdemeanors, and Felonies.  Once a plea has been received, the motorist will receive instructions on the next steps to be taken (ex:  Pre-Trial Conferences/Fine Due Dates).
