Champlain, New York
Champlain is a town in Clinton County, New York. It is in the most northeastern town in New York State. The northern town line is the Canada-US border. The eastern town line is the State of Vermont (across Lake Champlain). As of February of 2022, Champlain’s population was approximately 5,950. The town was established in 1788 and named in honor of Samuel de Champlain, a French colonist, soldier, explorer, and diplomat that surveyed the area in 1609. The town encompasses a village with the same name, Champlain. Most town offices are located in this village. Rouses Point is another village within the town. The village sits on Lake Champlain and is the main population area of the town.
Traffic Tickets in Champlain, New York
The Town of Champlain Justice Court adjudicates a large volume of traffic tickets. This is because a sizeable portion of the I-87 (Adirondack Northway) goes through the town’s jurisdiction. Thousands of motorists pass Champlain every day. The I-87 is a north-south bound highway that stretches 334 miles along the east New York State line. It enables travel between New York City and Montreal, Canada. The town court also handles all traffic violations that occur within the village boundaries. Rouses Point used to have their own separate justice court however this is no longer the case.
Most of the traffic tickets handled by the Champlain Town Court are for speeding violations. There are more speeding violations in Champlain than other courts. This is due partially because motorists going northbound speed up to reach the border. Going southbound, there are also a lot of speeding violations because motorists do not adjust properly between the KMH in Canada to the MPH in New York.
Some traffic stops are conducted on local roads. New York State Police and the Clinton County Sheriff's Department patrol town streets. The Village of Rouses Point also employs their own police department. Locally, US-Route 11 serves Champlain’s northern section. It runs east-west and connects to I-87 via on-ramps. Both the Village of Champlain and Village of Rouses Point are accessible from US-11. Running parallel on I-87’s east side is US-Route 9. It enters Champlain from the south and travels north until it reaches the Village of Champlain.
