After I return a “not guilty” plea on a summons, what can I expect?
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 Town Attorney. 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 Town Attorney, and the explanation satisfactorily supports the reason for not guilty, the Town Attorney 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 9:00 AM to 4:00 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?

What do I need to do if I got Handicap Zone ticket but I have a Handicap Parking Permit?
If a vehicle is (standing, stopped or parked) in a designated Handicap Parking space and the permit is not clearly visible and/or 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. 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 and phone number filled in, and a photocopy of the Handicap Parking Permit and a copy of your license 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.
