Anatomy of a New York Traffic Ticket

Understanding your charges and the kind of ticket you have been issued is half the battle, but it can be quite a struggle trying to decipher the curious paper you were handed when pulled-over.

First, Determine Which Form You Have

New York traffic tickets are typically printed on thin, thermal paper and come in two forms (shown below). Form A is a narrow sheet of paper (smaller than your typical 8.5 x 11 sheet of printer paper) that an officer fills out by hand. Form B is a full-size sheet of paper with all fields completed by a computer. Sometimes, Form B will appear to be one very long sheet of paper. In reality, these are two separate documents - one is the ticket and the other is the Supporting Deposition. → What Is A Supporting Deposition?
