TRAFFIC TICKETS ARE BEGINNING TO BE TRANSFERED TO THE NEW SUFFOLK COUNTY TRAFFIC COURT

This week at the Suffolk County Traffic Violation Bureau, the court began transfering some traffic tickets to the new court. A number of my cases were designated as transfered to the new court and were given dates past April 1, 2013, the date that the Suffolk TVB is scheduled to be closed and the new court to be opened.

HIGHWAY PARTOL BACK ON THE LIE AND SUNRISE HIGHWAY

On Wednesday, November 21, 2012, The Suffolk County Police's highway patrol began patrolling the Long Island Expressway and the Sunrise Highway. The Suffolk County Sheriff's department had been patroling these roads for the last few years. I would expect to see an increase in the number of traffic tickets issued on these roads. A few years ago when the highway patrol had been covering the Long Island Expressway and the Sunrise Highway, they issued a large amount of tickets.

LOCATION OF NEW SUFFOLK COUNTY TRAFFIC COURT

Though the county keeps changing the location they intend to open the New Suffolk County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency, the latest is that it will be located in the H.Lee Dennison Building in Hauppauge. The Dennison Building is actually located very close to the present Suffolk TVB.

BIG CHANGES COMING TO THE SUFFOLK TVB

Suffolk County will be doing away with the Suffolk TVB in Hauppauge. The Suffolk County Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB) will be replaced with a Suffolk County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency that will also be located in Hauppauge though at a different location from the present TVB. A bill establishing a Traffic and Parking Violations Agency was recently passed by both the NYS Senate and NYS Assembly, and then signed by the governor. The establishment of a Suffolk County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency will dramatically change the way most traffic tickets are prosecuted in Suffolk County. At present, most tickets returnable to the Suffolk Traffic Violations Bureau must be marked for trial. There is no negotiating. Also, under the new system, attorneys will be permitted to demand documents form the police/ court. This is important because I am able to get a many of the hand written Suffolk County speeding tickets and traffic tickets pending at the town, village and justice courts dismissed when these documents are not produced in a timely manner. Tickets returnable to the, Village Justice and Town courts throughout Suffolk County will not be affected by this change.
