Traffic Tickets in Somers, New York
The most commonly issued ticket in Somers is for speeding. This is due to the straight laid nature of their roads, and in addition, their long stretching distances. This mix causes drivers to unintentionally speed. Many speed traps are set up on the larger roads with fluctuating speed limits.
The north town area is served primarily by US Route 202. It is an east-west bound highway that spans the entire length of town, from the western hamlet of Amawalk, to the outskirts of Croton Falls. Several state routes intersect with US-202, such as New York State Route 118 (Tomahawk Street). NYS-118 runs north-south and intersects with US-202 in Granite Springs. It runs parallel to the Amawalk Reservoir as it heads south to Amawalk.
The largest road that serves the eastern part of town is New York State Route 100 (Somerstown Road). It runs north-south along the east town line through in its entirety. NYS-100 is notorious for its speed traps.
