Traffic Tickets in Monroe County

If you received a traffic ticket in Monroe County it will be adjudicated in Rochester City Court or any or the town and village justice courts scattered throughout the county. The exact location of the alleged violation determines which court has jurisdiction over your case. The location of the traffic stop does not matter at all.

The City of Rochester is surrounded by many highways that head in each direction. They circle the city and run through it. These interstates are I-390, I-490, and I-590. Another busy interstate that serves Monroe County is I-90 (New York State Thruway). This highway is found south of the city, but provides access to it via I-390 and I-490. I-90 runs east and west across the southern part of Monroe County. It is a very important highway that connects Rochester to cities like Buffalo, Syracuse and Albany. Many traffic stops take place on the interstate highways. Speeding is the most common infraction. For the most part, the speed limit is 65 miles per hour. However many motorists are closed over 80 mph, even nearing 100 mph.

The interstates are exclusively patrolled by the New York State Police. The local roads are dealt with by the town, village, and city police departments. The Monroe County Sheriff's Department will provide backup to the local precincts as necessary, but they mostly focus on towns without a dedicated police force. Regardless of who issued your ticket or which court it is returnable to, you should look into fighting the ticket. Pleading guilty or being found guilty can have serious consequences to your driving privileges and bank account.

Contrary to popular belief, your charges can be reduced, modified, or even dismissed. You do not have to have an excuse or defense. In fact the charges can be 100% correct. If handled properly you can save a lot of money in the short run and the long run. Furthermore, you do not have to appear personally in court.
