Traffic Tickets in the Town of Leyden

There are technically two courts in Leyden, the Leyden Town Court and the Port Leyden Village Court. However, they have mostly merged and for all practical purposes are one court. They share the same physical location and court staff. Traffic citations are written and issued by the New York State Police or Lewis County Sheriff’s Office. The most common charge in Leyden is speeding. The town’s speed limit fluctuates between 55 and 35 miles per hour, with the latter occurring in the more developed areas, such as Port Leyden.

Most traffic stops take place on New York State Route 12 (NYS-12) and New York State Route 120 (NYS-120). Both roads run diagonally and parallel to each other. They head northwest and southeast. NYS-12 is a four-lane highway that skirts along the town’s eastern boundary. NYS-120 is found more towards the middle of town. NYS-12 runs through the village and acts as its arterial road. NYS-120 passes through Locust Grove and Talcottville. Both roads leave town through the south-eastern boundary and head towards the neighboring village of Boonville. Leaving through the northwest town line brings motorists to Lyons Falls. The southwestern town area is more rural and consists of smaller local roads.
