"Alive at 25"

  • The Oswego County District Attorney's Office has joined forces with the National Traffic Safety Council to bring the "Alive at 25" program to Oswego County.

  • The "Alive at 25" program is a 4-hour course that follows established protocols that have proven effective in reaching younger drivers. The course is designed to educate young drivers to keep them safe.

  • This is not a point-reduction course.

  • If a driver between the ages of 16 and 24 receives a ticket for certain moving violations, they will be required to complete the course to be eligible for a ticket reduction. This includes, but is not limited to: cell phone, texting, and speeding offences.

    RESOLVING TICKETS

    The 4 ways to resolve your ticket(s) are as follows:

    1. Mail: Include all requested information referenced in the Traffic Ticket Guide and the Plea Bargain Request Form. It may take 3-4 weeks to process your ticket(s). If you have a court date scheduled in that time period, contact the court and request an adjournment.

    2. Town/Village Courts: On the scheduled ADA night, bring to court all requested information referenced in the Traffic Ticket Guide. The local town courts schedule ADA nights, therefore, call the court where your ticket is from to find out which night an Assistant District Attorney is next scheduled to appear.

      City Courts: An ADA is scheduled to appear in Oswego City Court every Tuesday and Thursday morning beginning at 9:00 am.
