Traffic Tickets in Prattsville, New York
Prattsville does not have a local police department. It receives police coverage from the New York State Police and the Greene County Sheriff’s Office. Both do traffic patrol and conduct traffic stops. All traffic citations issued in town are made answerable to the Prattsville Town Court. The court is located in the Town Hall on Main Street. The court will often adjudicate tickets that come from New York State Route 23.
NYS-23 is the town’s east-west bound arterial road. It runs along Schoharie Creek until it meets Batavia Kill, where it then heads east, passes through Red Falls, and leaves town. The speed limit on NYS-23 fluctuates between 45 and 35 mph, decreasing as you approach the more residential areas. The southern and northern more rural areas of town are served by county routes and smaller local roads. All roads lead back to NYS-23. County Route 10 (Washington Street) approaches NYS-23 from the north, County Route 7 (Hylan Boulevard) approaches from the north-west and County Route 2 approaches from the south.
Most of the town court’s traffic cases are speeding infractions. The typical speeding charge is for going above 50 mph in a 35 mph zone. Other charges include Driving Under the Influence and Driving with a Suspended License. For any other traffic related charges, you can contact the Benjamin Goldman Law Office
