How do I get my traffic Ticket Reduced?

TRAFFIC TICKET REDUCTION REQUESTS  

If you have been charged with a traffic violation other than Driving While Intoxicated or Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs, you may be eligible for a reduction of your charge or you may be eligible for the Traffic Diversion Program.  

To apply for a possible reduction to your traffic ticket, you can send a written request to:  

The Fulton County District Attorney's Office  
223 West Main Street Johnstown, NY 12095  

Please fill out and follow the instructions on the traffic reduction request form.  

When your letter is received by the District Attorney’s Office, complete with all of the requirements listed on the traffic reduction form, it will be reviewed and a written offer will be mailed to you. Due to the large number of requests received by the District Attorney’s Office, it may take up to two weeks to receive a response.  

Please call the local court where the ticket is pending to get your appearance date adjourned if you are hoping to do this through the mail.  

If you choose to accept the offer from the District Attorney’s office SIGN THE FORM AND RETURN IT TO THE COURT. The address for the court is on the lower half of the traffic ticket. If you chose not to accept the offer, contact the court to schedule a trial.  

If you have any questions regarding your ticket, you can email Trafficdiversion@fultoncountyny.gov
