Minerva does not have its own police department. The town law enforcement is “Troop B” of the New York State Police and the Essex County Sheriff’s Department. Both conduct traffic stops upon probable cause of a traffic violation. A traffic violation alleged to have been committed in the town of Minerva is adjudicated in the Town of Minerva Justice Court. The court is located in the Mivera Town Hall building in Olmstedville.
The town speed limit does not exceed 55 miles per hour, however, as motorists get closer to the more developed areas, the speed limit drops to 45 miles per hour. Most tickets in Minerva originate along New York State Route 28N (NYS-28N). NYS-28N is a north-south bound road that cuts through the middle section of town. It is the town’s arterial road and passes through several hamlets, including the more developed community of Olmstedville. The remaining town area is served by smaller local roads. Most traffic stops are for speeding, but citations are also issued often for driving with a suspended license or driving while using a cell phone. A relatively new law was introduced, titled the Move Over Law (VTL-1144AA). We can deal with tickets for this too.
