The vast majority of traffic tickets in Otsego County originate on Interstate 88 (I-88). It runs along the southern county line. I-88 is also known as the Senator Warren M.

On county routes, traffic stops can be conducted by state police, county sheriffs or the local town police. The court is determined by the location of the alleged violation. When on the receiving end of a ticket, you have two options: The first is to submit a guilty plea, pay the fines, and receive a conviction. The second would be to fight the charge, which is what we recommend doing. Even if you are guilty, there is no need to plea so. By fighting the ticket, you can get the charges reduced or dismissed entirely. The Benjamin Goldman Law Office offers legal services to ticketed motorists in Otsego County.
