You used Park Mobile but you still got a Ticket?

What can I do???

  1. Please check the history on your Park Mobile App and make sure you used the license plate of the car you were driving. The app will select your "default" vehicle if you did not choose another vehicle.

    Make sure everything on the history matches the license plate on your ticket.

  2. Make sure you paid for your location in Lambertville and not some other town. To avoid this issue make sure your "Location Services" option on your phone is turned "ON".

  3. If there is a difference between the license plate on your ticket and the license plate used for Lambertville (every letter, number and symbol MUST match) you may plead Not Guilty and complete a Plea by Mail.

  4. If you wish to plead Not Guilty and submit your defense through the mail, here are the steps to complete:
    • Print the Plea by Mail on this website: lambertvillenj.org
    • GO TO: departments - - Municipal Court
    • Fill out the information with your facts in defense or explanation
    • Attach a copy of your Park Mobile history to your Plea By Mail
    • Send the Plea by Mail and attachments to:
      Lambertville Municipal Court
      25 S. Union Street
      Lambertville, NJ 08530

Please mail your information to the court only. Do Not Email or Fax. Your case will be scheduled for review by the Judge. You do not need to appear in person.

Allow 3 to 4 weeks for scheduling.

You may check the status of your ticket by going to www.njmedirect.com

Municipal Court Information

The Municipal Court is responsible for traffic offenses, minor crimes and civil offenses that occur within the City borders. These include motor vehicle and parking tickets, municipal ordinance offenses (such as dog barking or building code violations) and other offenses, such as fish and game violations.

More serious criminal cases, such as robbery, auto theft, or assault, often start out as complaints filed in the Municipal Court but those cases are then transferred to the Superior Court located at the Hunterdon County courthouse.

Payments by mail are to be by check or money order made payable to "Municipal Court of the City of Lambertville". Do not send cash.  Please print the ticket number on the front of the check or money order.
