Hornell, New York

Hornell, New York

Hornell is a small city in Steuben County, New York. It is one of two cities in the county, the other being Corning. Both cities serve as metropolitan areas for the largely rural county. The town of Hornellsville surrounds the city. Hornell’s heyday was in the late 19th century when four different rail lines had stops in the city. At the city’s peak, it has a population of more than fifteen thousand. In the 1960’s with railroads going out of usage, the city began contracting. It has been decreasing in population since then. As of July of 2022, the city population was at 8,174. Hornell is nicknamed the “Maple City” due to the abundance of maple trees in the area.

Traffic Tickets in Hornell, New York

A majority of tickets in Hornell come from the city’s arterial road, the north-south bound Maple City Drive (New York State Route 21/New York State Route 36) Maple City Drive is a two lane highway in both directions that is divided by a center grassy median. The speed limit is 30 miles per hour. For a large road like this the speed is unusual. Similar roads see speed limits in the 40 to 50 mile per hour range. This unusually low speed leads motorists to unintentionally speed while traversing it. Most speeding tickets are issued near the city’s boundary. A wide range of violations are handed out on the local city streets as well. These include texting while driving, disobeying a traffic control device, failing to yield to pedestrians and improper turns.

The Hornell City Court, located on Main Street, adjudicates all tickets issued in the city. City tickets are typically written by officers of the Hornell City Police Department. The New York State Police and Steuben County Sheriff’s Department can conduct traffic stops as well.
