Tickets in New York City are tried at the Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB). At TVB, you cannot negotiate with the prosecutor for a reduced penalty. You simply fight the case, and are found guilty or not guilty by the judge. Click here to learn more about the Traffic Violations Bureau. 

Outside New York City, traffic tickets are adjudicated in local courts, where the motorist may have the ability to plea the ticket down to a lesser charge. Read more about how this process works. 

If points on your license are important to you, consider consulting with a traffic attorney.
