About Chautauqua County, Ny
Chautauqua County is located in the southwestern corner of New York state bordering the state of Pennsylania and Lake Erie (one of the Great Lakes). Major highways passing through this area include Interstates I-86 and I-90, U.S. Routes 20 and 62, and New York State Routes 17, 5, 39, 60, 394, and 430 - plenty of places to get pulled over. Note that drivers from visiting states and Canada are still susceptible to the state Driver Responsibility assessment fee imposed on motorists who accumulate 6 points or more within 18 months in New York state. Chautauqua County encompasses several local justice courts:
Arkwright Town Court, Brocton Village Court, Busti Town Court, Carroll Town Court, Charlotte Town Court, Chautauqua Town Court, Cherry Creek Town Court, Clymer Town Court, Dunkirk City Court, Dunkirk Town Court, Ellery Town Court, Ellicott Town Court, Ellington Town Court, Fredonia Village Court, French Creek Town Court, Gerry Town Court, Hanover Town Court, Harmony Town Court, Jamestown City Court, Kiantone Town Court, Mina Town Court, North Harmony Town Court, Poland Town Court, Pomfret Town Court, Ripley Town Court, Sheridan Town Court, Sherman Town Court, Silver Creek Village Court, Stockton Town Court, Villenova Town Court, Westfield Town Court, Westfield Village Court.
Each of these justice courts has power to issue fines that vary within certain parameters set by state law. Many out-of-state drivers will look for a fine amount on their New York ticket. However, in Chautauqua and othe New York counties, no fine is issued until the case is resolved - either by trial, plea bargain, or default judgment. Instead, you are required to answer the ticket by returning it to the court with a plea of "Guilty" or "Not Guilty". Make sure you have a comfortable understanding of all possible penalties and the DMV Points system before entering a plea. If you would like to consult with an experienced Chautauqua ticket lawyer regarding your case, call our office or send us a message online. Your plea must be accepted by the court by the date indicated on the bottom of your ticket. Failure to answer will eventually result in the suspension of your driving privileges in New York state and other possible legal complications.
