FAQ’s:

After I return a “not guilty” plea on a summons, what can I expect? How can I find out the status of a ticket?
A “not guilty” plea for a parking ticket takes approximately 2 weeks from the date the Town of Huntington Traffic Violations Bureau receives it to be processed in the system. Normal procedure for all “not guilty” pleas is the appointment of a conference between the registered owner of the vehicle and the hearing officer. A letter will be sent to the registered owner of the vehicle indicating the time and date to appear at the Town of Huntington Traffic Court held in the Huntington Town Hall building, room 114, 100 Main St., Huntington, NY. For “not guilty” pleas that are received with a letter of explanation that requires no further information for the hearing officer, and the explanation satisfactorily supports the reason for not guilty, the hearing officer may make a decision on the summons without the need for the registered owner to appear. In such cases where you have submitted a satisfactory letter of explanation and you have not heard back from the court, (approximately 4 weeks from your original submission) you can call the Traffic Violations Bureau Monday through Friday between 8:30 AM and 4:30 PM to confirm the disposition of the ticket, as it takes approximately 2 additional weeks for the system to be updated.

How do I get to the Town of Huntington Traffic Court?
Appearance at the Town of Huntington Traffic Court is by appointment only. Court is held in the Huntington Town Hall building, 100 Main St., Huntington, NY 11743 in Room 114.

If you fail to appear for your conference, all fines, plus any late charges or penalties will be assessed and you will be responsible for the entire payment in full.

I received a parking ticket for parking in a Handicap Zone but I (or passenger in vehicle) have a Handicap Parking Permit. Why did I get this ticket? What do I need to do?
If a vehicle is (standing, stopped or parked) in a designated Handicap Parking space and the permit is not clearly visible and hanging from the rear view mirror, (even if the passenger(s) are still in the vehicle,) it is a violation of the Handicap Parking regulations and a summons is issued. See §TC4-1A & §TC4-3F of the Town of Huntington Uniform Traffic Code updated March 1, 2013. To plead “not guilty” to this violation, you will need to submit the original ticket with the appropriate box checked in the plea form section, your name and address filled in, and a photocopy of the Handicap Parking Permit along with a statement of explanation. Please indicate whom the Handicap Permit is issued to, and the relationship to the registered owner of the vehicle if they are not one in the same.

I received a parking ticket in the mail and I have no idea what this is about / did not have a ticket on the windshield?
The Town of Huntington has a Handicap and Fire Zone Enforcement program. Volunteers are sworn in by the Town Board to enforce Handicap and Fire Zone Parking violations on Town properties and on authorized privately owned properties that have requested the Town’s enforcement. The volunteer takes a photograph of the alleged violation and fills out a sworn affidavit detailing the infraction. This information is processed and the actual ticket is subsequently issued (issue date on ticket) and mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. The date the infraction occurred is in the violation date box above and to the right of the issued date.

I received a parking ticket, how long do I have to make the payment?
Parking tickets are due upon receipt; however, no late charges will be assessed if payment in full is received within 30 days of the date of issue on the summons. The amount due is indicated in the “FINE” column on the summons. After 30 days, a late charge is assessed as indicated in the “AFT 30” column. Subsequent late fees are assessed as indicated in the “AFT 60” and “AFT 90” columns. Certain violations are subject to additional penalties if it is a 2nd, 3rd or more offense of the same infraction. If this is the case with your ticket, you will be notified of such by the court.
