Traffic Tickets in Nyack, New York
The Nyack Village Court deals with all village traffic related offenses. This court sees a relatively large number of traffic tickets because a portion of the I-87/I-287 (New York State Thruway) passes through the village boundaries. The speed limit on the Thruway through Nyack is 55 mph. The typical Thruway speed limit is 65 miles per hour and often motorists do not adjust properly. New York State Police conduct traffic stops in the area and most of their citations are for speeding violations. The typical driver that received a speeding infraction was in fact speeding inadvertently.
Some traffic stops are conducted on the local roads as well. Traffic tickets originating on village streets include charges for disobeying a traffic control device, failing to use turn signals, texting while driving, and speeding. The speed limit on village roads is 30 miles per hour.
The village consists of three main roads and many smaller side-streets. The main roads are North Highland Avenue (US-Route 9W), North Broadway, and New York State Route 59 (Main Street). US-9W runs north-south through the western village half. North Broadway does the same, but along the Hudson, in the eastern half of Nyack. NYS-59 approaches the village from the west and intersects with US-9W in the southwest corner.
If you received a traffic ticket that carries DMV points, you should consider fighting the charges. There is no need to come back to Nyack to fight your ticket. An attorney can go to court in your place. Also, a good traffic lawyer can fight your ticket even if you do not have a defense to the allegations.
