The area is served by Interstates 90 and 690; New York State Routes 31, 48, and 173 pass through parts of town.

Tip: A driver should bring their driving record to court. If the record is clean, it can be persuasive and help mitigate the situation.

Court Clerk: The role of the Court Clerk is to assist the Judges in carrying out their duties. They may assist the Judges in court as well as out of court. Many clerks send letters to litigants, collect fine monies, and help answer day-to-day questions before the court.

Judges: While a plea bargain can be struck between the prosecutor and a defendant, the judge has the ultimate power to accept or reject the proposed disposition. If the court accepts the resolution, a fine will be assessed.

How Many Points Will I Face?

Points will affect a driver’s privilege to drive for 18 months from the date in which the ticket was issued. In other words, the points do not run from the date of the conviction. They run from the moment the officer issued the summons.
