Can I contest a charge/ticket?

Yes, you can always contest a charge. You have an absolute right to plead not guilty and you are presumed innocent until the Town proves your guilt. The Town has the burden of proof. Unlike a criminal charge, however, the Town need only prove you guilty by a preponderance of the evidence. The Town need not prove you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
