That said I had an officer not show up in PA and the judge just said - so sorry we will reschedule it - see you in a few weeks. The question is do you really want to truck back to NYC for a hearing to find out if he is going to show up or not? I doubt there is reciprosity between NY and CT - no points. Now if your insurance company tracks this sort of stuff you could have another issue.
