Traffic Tickets in Carlisle, New York
All traffic violations alleged to have been committed in the town of Carlisle are adjudicated in the Town of Carlisle Justice Court. Traffic citations can be issued by the The New York State Police and the Schoharie County Sheriff's Department. Most traffic stops are conducted on Route 20 (US-20).
US-20 is an east-west road that runs straight through the entire town. As it enters the town on both the east side and the west side, US-20 is a four lane highway with a grassy median. The speed limit is 55 mph. However, as the road is very straight and flat, it gives rise to motorists exceeding the speed limit. As the US-20 enters the center of town, from both the east and the west, the road narrows. It becomes one lane in each direction with one central turning lane that can be utilized by vehicles going in both directions. The speed limit is reduced to 40 miles per hour. Almost all traffic tickets originate from traffic stops on the US-20. The majority of citations are for speeding. Some uncommon tickets issued in Carlisle include dangerous driving and unsafe passing. If you received a speeding ticket in Carlisle, it makes sense to contact a traffic lawyer before you take any action.
