How do I request a traffic hearing?

Requests for informal or formal hearings must be received 6 to 14 days from the date the ticket was issued. Failure to make a timely request for a hearing will result in entry of a default judgment against the defendant.To request an informal or formal hearing notify the court by phone, in person, or in writing that you are denying responsibility for your citation and specify if you wish to have an informal or formal hearing. Please notify the court of any dates and time that you will not be available to appear for your hearing. (The court will try to accommodate reasonable requests). Also, inform the court of the address you wish to have your notice to appear sent; if it is different from the address on your citation. A phone number where you can be reached during business hours 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. is appreciated.
