Traffic Tickets in Catskill
The Catskill Town Court handles a lot of serious speeding tickets. This is because of the the New York State Thruway (Interstate 87), which runs north-south through a large portion of the town. The speed limit is 65 miles per hour, but motorists going this area tend to exceed the speed limit, mostly unintentionally. New York State Police patrol the highway and typically conduct traffic stops for vehicles clocked in the 80 mph range or above.
Traffic stops are conducted on the local streets as well. The main roads in town are north-south U.S. Route 9W and east-west Route 23. Both have speed limits that fluctuate, dropping to 30 mph as they enter the downtown area. Officers in the Village of Catskill Police Department are authorized to issue traffic tickets on village roads.
Traffic tickets can be costly and serious traffic tickets can result in suspension. If you were issued a traffic citation, it is prudent that you contact a traffic ticket lawyer before you take action. The charges can be reduced or modified, thereby saving you thousands. This can be done without you having to appear in court and without you having to submit a defense to the charge. You can contact the Benjamin Goldman Law Office to find out more. We provide motorists with free consultations.
