The Town of Greenburgh, NY is the largest in Westchester County. It encompasses the Villages of Ardsley, Dobbs Ferry, Elmsford, Hastings-On-Hudson, Irvington, and Tarrytown. If you get a ticket in those villages the case will be heard before those village justice courts. However, if you received your ticket in the unincorporated areas of Edgemont (Greenville), Hartsdale, or Fairview, your case will be heard in the Greenburgh Town Court.
Located at 188 Tarrytown Rd, White Plains, NY 10607, the Greenburgh Town Court is a volume court because Interstate 87 as well as the Cross Westchester Expressway (Interstate 287) runs through, as well as the Bronx River Parkway and the Sprain Brook Parkway. This means that not only to Greenburgh Police write tickets returned to the Greenburgh Town Court, but so do the New York State Police as well as the Westchester County Police.
No matter which agency wrote the ticket, there is a special prosecutor who has been appointed to prosecute all speeding tickets (NY VTL § 1180) and all other moving violations. If you were written a criminal ticket such as reckless driving, VTL § 1212 or aggravated unlicensed operation, VTL § 511, this is a much more serious matter and will be prosecuted by the Westchester County District Attorney.
Because of the high volume of infraction speeding and moving violation tickets the court meets at various times. State Trooper tickets are scheduled on Monday at either 9:30 a.m. or 2:00 p.m. for conference only. Town of Greenburgh municipal violations as well as vehicle and traffic cases are scheduled on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m., 11:00 a.m., or 2:00 p.m. for conference only. Westchester County Police tickets are scheduled on Wednesdays at either 1:30 p.m. or 3:00 p.m. for conference only. If you cannot resolve your speeding ticket by plea bargain with the town prosecutor you will have to come back a separate day for trial around the police officer’s schedule. In that case your trial could be scheduled anywhere from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
If you were charged with a traffic crime (misdemeanor or felony) in Greenburgh Town Court such as DUI, reckless driving, or a CDL violation under the transportation law such as a log book violation, NY T.L. § 140, then your case will not be prosecuted by the town prosecutor but the Westchester County District Attorney.
