Call Now 800-893-9645How to Fight a Speeding Ticket in Parishville Town

The Town of Parishville lies partially inside Adirondack State Park, alongside the St. Regis and Raquette Rivers, and covers more than 101 square miles in St. Lawrence County. Joe Indian Pond, and the Lake Falls and Rainbow Falls Reservoirs are all in the greater area of town, which has a population of 2,153 (2010 U.S. Census). The area is served by NY State Routes 56 and 72, on which many drivers are pulled over daily for speeding violations.

Further complicating things are the frequently changing topography with the rolling hills and rapidly changing speed limits. Unless a driver keeps an uber vigilant eye on their speedometer, they could be prone to being tagged with a costly traffic summons.
