Leicester is one of the many towns that are speed traps for out of town motorists. For people traveling to Buffalo from areas downstate, Google and Waze will often take you off interstate 390 and direct you to use the US-20A. This is a more direct route. However the downside is the speed traps. Motorists going towards the Buffalo and Niagara area are at the end of their trip and also used to driving at the high speeds of the interstate for many hours. This leads many motorists to speed through the US-20A and other local roads. The speed limit off the interstate never exceeds 55 mph and is often reduced as low as 30 mph in more developed areas.
Leicester is one such town. The roads that see a lot of traffic stops are Perry Road (CR-64), Mount Morris Road (NYS-36), Leicester Road (US-20A), and Curleyville Road (NYS-39). If you had the unfortunate luck of being stopped in Leicester, all is not lost. A traffic ticket attorney can likely get your ticket dismissed or reduced.
