Buchanan Village Court, New York Speeding & Traffic Ticket Defense
The Buchanan Village Court is located at 236 Tate Avenue, Buchanan, NY 10511, and is within the Town of Cortlandt Manor in New York’s Westchester County. It is located on the East Bank of the Hudson River and is home to the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant. Inasmuch as no major highways traverse the village, all speeding ticket and moving violations are on local surface streets. The court convenes Tuesday at 7 P.M. for speeding and traffic matters.
While due to the character and nature of the village, egregious traffic violations usually do not occur there. Nonetheless, the New York State DMV doesn’t care whether you were found guilty of doing 41 MPH in a 20 MPH zone, or 95 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. They are both 6 point tickets. Nor do they care how many miles a year you drive, or if you drive for work or just to and from church on Sunday. All the DMV, and your insurance company, sees are the cold hard convictions and points.
In addition to the points, fines, and insurance increases, there is also the Driver Responsibility Assessment, which is another surcharge triggered when a motorist hits 6 or more points in a given 18 month period from 1 or more tickets. The assessments start at $300.00 for the first 6 points, and $75.00 for every point thereafter. Further, forgetting to pay results in a suspension of your license to operate in New York State. This applies to out of state motorists as well. Moreover while taking the NYS DMV approved Driver Safety Course gives you a 4 point credit against suspensions, it does not result in a reduction of the surcharge.
