2.0 How do I beat my ticket?
The Ticket Fighting Process
Before anything else, you should request a trial if you want to fight your ticket. Once the 15 days are up, there is no guarantee you'll get your fair chance in court, and you may have to ask the court for a re-opening.
In order to request a trial, you will need to submit a Notice of Intention to Appear (NOI) at the appropriate courthouse yourself or get another person too.
Note that courthouses are often busy and the line-ups can be quite long. If you don't want to make the trip, our online filing system may be of help. For a few dollars, we'll make the trip to the courthouse on your behalf.
