Lawyer’s Traffic Ticket Guide for De Kalb Town Court
The town of De Kalb covers more than 83 square miles in St. Lawrence County, in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountain Range. The town, with a population of 2,434 (2010 U.S. Census), surrounds a village and a hamlet, both named De Kalb, and the hamlet of De Kalb Junction. The area is served by U.S. Route 11 and New York State Route 812, which intersect south of the village.
Highways such as these have many open stretches of road that make it easy for motorists to lose sight of the speed limit due to the rolling topography. It is usually in these situations where you can find yourself facing a speeding ticket.
Speeding tickets can be very overwhelming and confusing; that’s why our attorneys have created this guide to help you find some ease of mind with your legal matter.
