Traffic Tickets in Nichols, New York
All citations for traffic violations alleged to have been committed within the town borders are adjudicated in the Town of Nichols Justice Court. In 2020, the court moved from East River Street to the old Nichols Elementary School on Ro-Ki Boulevard. The vast majority of cases handled in this court are speeding violations. A large portion of the Southern Tier Expressway (Interstate 86) traverses east-west through the town, mostly parallel with the Susquehanna River. It has two lanes in each direction with a large grassy median. The speed limit is 65 miles per hour. However, many motorists exceed the speed limit in this area, mostly unintentionally. New York State Police patrol the Expressway and often conduct traffic stops in Nichols.
Many commercial truck drivers that pass through Nichols are cited with an overweight vehicle ticket. These overweight tickets (VTL 385-8, 385-9, 385-10) are issued at weighing stations. The fines involved with these violations are excruciatingly high. Visit our dedicated page on overweight tickets for more information.
Handling a ticket properly can result in dismissal of all the charges and no fine. Not handling a ticket properly can result in high fines & fees, substantial increases in your insurance rates, and possible action against your license. This is especially true for Nichols cases. You do not have to appear in court or have a provable defense to fight your charges. Therefore, before you do anything with your ticket, it is prudent that you contact a traffic ticket attorney. The Benjamin Goldman Law Office provides motorists with a free consultation. We will be glad to have a conversation about your charges and your options.
