Traffic Tickets in Harriman, New York
A portion of Interstate 87 (New York State Thruway) runs north-south through Harriman. The speed limit is 65 miles per hour. The I-87 through Harriman has three lanes in each direction and it is laid out flat and straight with wide shoulders. This leads motorists to – mostly unintentionally – exceed the 65 mph speed limit. Troop F of the New York State Police patrol the highway and often conduct traffic stops for speeding.
Traffic citations are issued on the local roads as well. The village connects to the interstate via New York State Route 17 and a set of on-ramps just outside its north-eastern boundary. NYS-17 is the village’s primary road. It runs north-east and south-west. The second largest road is New York State Route 17M (Ramapo Avenue), which runs north-west and south-east in the western half of the village. Both NYS-17 and NYS-17M are connected by Grove Street. The remaining village area primarily consists of small local side streets.
Traffic stops on local roads are generally conducted by officers of the Harriman Police Department. All traffic violations alleged to have occurred within the village boundaries are adjudicated in the Harriman Village Court.
If you received a traffic infraction in Harriman, it is best if you contact a traffic lawyer before you take action. Especially if you received a speeding ticket. Traffic charges can be expensive and can cause your insurance to increase for a number of years. A good traffic attorney can go to court instead of you and get the charges modified so that you avoid the otherwise serious and costly consequences of your charges. You do not need to be innocent of the allegations or even present a defense. You can contact the Benjamin Goldman Law Office to find out more information. Our consultations are free.
