Traffic Tickets in Oneida County
In Oneida County, there are 26 town courts, 8 village courts, and 3 city courts. This means there are 37 different courts in the county that deal with traffic tickets. This appears to be the most of all 62 New York counties. Some courts are very busy and some barely have any court sessions. A major factor in the number of cases in a court is the municipality’s proximity to major highways. Some of the busiest courts in Oneida County are found along Interstate 90 (New York State Thruway). The I-90 runs east-west across most of the northern US, across the entire New York State, and across the southern part of Oneida County. It provides local access to the cities of Utica and Rome. Heading west on I-90 brings you to the New York cities of Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo. Heading east brings you to Albany, where it continues to its eastern terminus in Boston, Massachusetts. The interstate is used by thousands of motorists each day to cross the state and the country.
The shoulders of the I-90 highway are the location of many traffic stops. The I-90 is patrolled exclusively by New York State Police. They issue numerous traffic citations, mostly for speeding infractions. The speed limit on the I-90 in New York State does not exceed 65 miles per hour. On county routes and local streets, traffic stops can be conducted by other police agencies as well. Where appropriate, you can receive a traffic summons from a sheriff deputy, city police officer, town police officer, or village police officer. Off the highway, traffic stops are conducted for more various traffic violations. Typical charges include driving with an expired license, Reckless Driving, disobeying a traffic control device, and driving with an expired registration.
