Greene County, New York

Greene County is a large and rural county in upstate New York State. As of 2018, the county population was 47,491. Technically, Greene County is in the Capital District region, but it is also considered part of the Hudson Valley region. The Catskill Mountains take up the southern and western portion of the county. The eastern and northern part of the county are mostly flatlands. The Hudson River is the county’s eastern border.

Traffic Tickets in Greene County

Some towns and villages have small police departments. Most of the county is policed by the Greene County Sheriff's Office and Troop G of the New York State Police. Most traffic stops are conducted by state troopers. The majority of traffic violations occur on the New York State Thruway, which runs north-south through the eastern portion of the county.

A number of Greene County roads are speed traps, specifically where the speed limit switches between 55 mph and lower speed limits. Motorists, often from out of the area and often distracted by the scenery, fail to take notice of the reduced speed limit. One example is New York Route 23, which traverses the entire county. NYS-23 goes through a number of towns where the highway turns into the area’s main street and then back to a highway as it leaves the town. Other busy routes are NYS-32, NYS-23A, and US-9W, which runs north-south parallel with the Thruway.
