What to expect in Pleasantville Town Court
Analysis and commentary:  Pleasantville Traffic Court is located in the bucolic downtown section of the town.  The court is located on the corner of Wheeler Avenue and the courthouse resembles an old bank building.  The courthouse building also houses the municipal government.  

When you arrive in court, you will enter the building on the side and proceed to the 2nd floor.  There is an elevator located almost as soon as you enter the building.  Once you exit the elevator, the court is located to your immediate right.  There is a good chance that a local officer will escort you through the metal detector and advise you to turn off your electronic devices before entering the courtroom.

In general, local police officers that issue tickets retain authority to prosecute their summons.  However, they share the prosecutorial authority with the Village Prosecutor.  In other words, your ticket can be handled by either party.  The court is run very efficiently.  On any given night court session, both civil cases and traffic cases can be heard.  The court will often adjudicate code violations, landlord tenant disputes, and parking tickets.
