Traffic Tickets in Lima, New York
US-20 cuts through town heading east and west. It passes directly through the village, acting as its main road as well. Intersecting US-20 in the village is the north-south bound New York State Route 15A. Taking US-20 westbound will bring you to the neighboring village of Avon, but not before crossing under the Genesee Expressway (I-390). Heading east on US-20 out of Lima will bring you to Bloomfield. The area surrounding the village is very rural and mostly consists of small local roads. These roads all lead back to the arterial road, US-20.
Lima’s main road, US-Route 20, is where most traffic tickets originate. At the town outskirts, the speed limit is 55 mph. It then gets reduced as you head into the downtown area and the village. The speed limit goes to 40 mph and then to 30 mph. The changes in speed limit often ensnare out-of-town motorists that are not paying well attention to the signs.
Traffic stops in Lima can be conducted by New York State Police or Livingston County Sheriffs. All traffic violations are adjudicated in the Lima Town Court (Lima Justice Court) . The court is located on Main Street in Lima Village. For any traffic infraction, you can contact the Benjamin Goldman Law Office.
