Receiving a speeding ticket in and around Rye, NY can be very confusing. There is the City of Rye City and the Town of Rye. Rye City has its own court, but the Town of Rye holds court in the Village of Port Chester. Moreover, due to the overlapping jurisdictions, your ticket may have been written by the Rye Brook Police, SUNY Public Safety Police, Westchester County Police, New York State Police, Port Chester Police, or the City of Rye Police. Indeed, you may not even have committed your violation in either the City or Town of Rye. The Rye Town Court has jurisdiction in parts of the Village of Port Chester, Rye Brook, and the Rye Neck section of Mamaroneck, New York.

No matter where along the eastern shoreline of Westchester County, including Larchmont and New Rochelle you receive your speeding or traffic ticket, we can represent you in traffic court.Special defenses in Eastern Westchester County
Because the geographical lines are so tight, the first thing we review to defend a Speeding Ticket written in or around Harrison, NY is to verify the police officer returned the ticket to the correct court and also had jurisdiction to write the ticket. A New York Traffic Court has no subject matter jurisdiction, i.e., authority, to hear a ticket unless the violation occurred within its geographical area, and the cop had the authority to write the ticket. We have the skill, experience, and knowledge to raise these issues, which can stop a prosecution dead in its tracks.All courts. All Defenses
