Traffic Tickets in Springfield, New York
The New York State Police and the Otsego County Sheriff’s Department conduct traffic patrol in Springfield. They are authorized to conduct a traffic stop upon probable cause of any violation of New York’s Vehicle & Traffic Law. Traffic citations are adjudicated in the Springfield Town Court (also known as Springfield Justice Court). The court deals with various violations that typically originate on the town’s arterial roads, New York State Route 80 (NYS-80) and US-Route 20 (US-20). These roads intersect in Springfield Center.
US-20 runs east and west. It passes through Springfield, Middle Village, and East Springfield. New York State Route 80 runs north and south, passing through Springfield Four Corners and Springfield Center. As it heads towards the south town line it runs along the Otsego Lake’s west bank. As NYS-80 enters Springfield Center, the speed limit is reduced to 30 mph. This often turns into a speed trap for motorists who are not from the area and not paying close attention to the signs.
