What to Expect in Greenburgh Town Court: Speeding Tickets and Traffic Matters
The court is located at 188 Tarrytown Road in White Plains, New York. It is one block away from I-287 entrance and a few blocks away from AMF White Plains (Bowling) Lanes and Papa John’s Pizza. If you have a difficult time finding the court, the building is adjacent to the police department. There is a small parking lot in front of the court and additional parking along Route 119. Once you park your car, you will find the court a few steps from the top of the windy stairs. Court is held on the first floor.
Traffic matters are heard throughout the week and can be scheduled for either the morning or afternoon court session. Recently, the court established a night court term.
Inside the Court
If you have been issued a ticket, you must enter a plea of not guilty within 48 hours of receipt. The court will send you a letter with a court date. On the court date, you must “check in” with the court officers located immediately as you walk through the entrance of the building. The officers will walk you through a metal detector and advise you to turn off all electronic devices. Further, there is no food or drinks allowed in the courtroom.
After you check in, you will be instructed to have a seat in the courtroom. The court can accommodate approximately 100 individuals.
Eventually, your name will be called and you will line up to meet with the prosecutor. In some circumstances, the prosecutor will be the officer that issued you the summons. In other circumstances, the prosecutor will be a representative from the Town Attorney’s Office.
The process of going to court can take several hours. There are often administrative delays and no shortage of traffic violations. So, you should be prepared to spend at least half a day in court.
