Important Numbers


The District Attorney’s office is responsible for prosecuting all criminal matters in Onondaga County including your traffic infraction. If you are like most citizens, this is probably your first, and hopefully, last violation.

It is the policy of the District Attorney’s Office to conference all criminal actions including traffic matters with attorneys however, you may choose to act on your own behalf.

If you do not wish to hire an attorney and do not wish to proceed to trial, you have two options.

One is to plead guilty to the charge against you. You are free to offer any explanation you feel is important that the judge may consider in imposing a fair sentence.

Read the following Instructions for Application to Amend Traffic Infraction(s) carefully. If you do not include all requested information your application will not be returned and it will not be processed.
