Traffic and Parking Violations

If you receive a traffic ticket for a moving violation such as speeding or running a red light, it is helpful to know your rights. If you owe a fine, or wish to enter a plea of not guilty and go to court, it is important to respond quickly within the dates stipulated on the ticket. You may receive points on your license for certain infractions, and your insurance rates may go up for any infractions for which you are found guilty. More information can be found on the State of Connecticut Judicial Branch website.

If you receive a parking ticket from the City of New Haven, it is advisable to take action quickly if you would like to dispute the ticket. Otherwise, you should make payment as soon as possible because the fine will increase over time.
