Request for Continuance

FROM: (Your Name), Defendant (Your Title - If applicable)

DOCKET# (The docket number exactly as it appears on your subpoena)
I humbly submit this Request for Continuance as the defendant in the Traffic Court Case named above. The Court has issued a hearing date of May 13, 2011 at 10:00 A.M. I work for an auto dealership, and our owner is coming in for a big sale we are having that starts the day before my hearing. There is no way I will be able to excuse myself from work. Also, the fact that I work nearly 70 hours per week has left me little time to prepare the evidence I need for my case, which I planned on retrieving from West Virginia (more than a 3 hour drive from my home in Pennsylvania). I am requesting a continuance until after May 17th, when this scheduling conflict will be resolved.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.
