Traffic Tickets in Burns, New York
Traffic tickets that originate in Burns are adjudicated by the Burns Town Court. The court is located inside the village of Canaseraga. There is no local law enforcement. Instead, the town is patrolled by the New York State Police and the Allegany County Sheriff’s Department. These officers write tickets answerable to the town court. They frequently cite motorists with speeding. This occurs mostly on the town’s arterial road, New York State Route 70 (NYS-70).
NYS-70 is a highway that traverses the north part of town running east and west. It passes through the Hamlet of Garwoods and the Village of Canaseraga. It meets with the north-south bound County Route 138/17 (Mill Street) in the center of the village.
Motorists approaching Canaseraga from the east (via NYS-70) should be ready to reduce their speed. As you enter the village, the speed limit is reduced from 55 mph to 30 mph. In addition, there is a nearby school zone. Speed zone tickets carry double fines and greater insurance increases.
