NOTICE TO THE BAR

Re: Revisions to the Uniform Traffic Ticket, the Special Form of Complaint and Summons, and the New Jersey Uniform Electronic Ticket [Parking Authority Ticketing System (PATS) Project]

Attached (in Adobe Acrobat PDF format) are revised specimens of the Uniform Traffic Ticket (UTT-1 and UTT-2) and the Special Form of Complaint and Summons (SF-1 and SF-2), as well as the Instructions that prescribe the use of these forms in the Municipal Courts. The new forms and Instructions were promulgated for use on December 15, 2001. Use of the previous versions of these forms was authorized through June 1, 2002 in order to allow existing supplies of the previous versions to be exhausted. As of June 1, 2002, however, only the attached revised specimens of the Uniform Traffic Ticket and the Special Form of Complaint and Summons are authorized for use in the Municipal Courts.

On December 15, 2001, the attached specimens and Instructions for use of revised versions of the New Jersey Uniform Electronic Ticket (PATS-1 and PATS-2) also were promulgated. These new electronic tickets were designed for use in connection with a planned equipment upgrade for the Parking Authority Ticketing System (PATS) project. They are reduced in size to accommodate new, smaller and lighter hand-held ticket-issuing hardware. In December, Municipal Courts were notified that the previous version of the PATS form was authorized for use until June 1, 2002, in order to allow existing supplies to be exhausted. However, the new PATS technology will not be in place by June 1, 2002 and the revised PATS-1 and PATS-2 forms cannot be used until the technology upgrade is completed. Therefore, the previous versions of the New Jersey Uniform Electronic Ticket (attached as ET-1 and ET-2) are authorized for continued use with the currently available PATS equipment beyond June 1, 2002. As each participating parking authority or agency is converted to the new technology, only the PATS-1 or PATS-2 forms, designed for use with the new equipment, will be authorized in that jurisdiction.
