The stated mission of this organization is to “maintain and enhance” pedestrian and vehicular safety. The agency aims to accomplish this through education and adjudication of traffic and parking violations. Unless otherwise noted, a person issued a citation or notice is to appear in court at 9:00 a.m.
Violations heard by the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency include speed in zone, stop signs, running red lights, passing school buses, and cellphone tickets. The NCTPVA is located in Nassau County, New York at 16 Cooper Street in Hempstead.
It is important to note that any New York traffic ticket can carry fines, points and surcharges. Certain violations may also incur revocations and suspensions. Those convicted of a traffic violation may be subject to auto insurance rate increases. Those who are charged and required to appear in NCTPVA are encouraged to contact a legal representative before entering any type of plea.
Any driver who decides to pay the citation, can do so via certified check, personal check, money order, cash or credit card. Anyone who pays late and does not appear in court is subject to additional penalties and monetary charges. Payments can also be made by phone using a credit card. The phone number is 516-572-2389 and it is staffed during the week between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
