Amherst is town in Erie County and considered a suburb of the City of Buffalo. With over one hundred and twenty thousand people, it is the most populated town in upstate New York. Within Amherst are a number of different villages and hamlets.
Amherst is one of the New York towns with the highest volume of traffic tickets. This is due to a number of reasons. The town is within the proximity of the I-90 (New York State Thruway) and its spur routes of I-290 (Youngman Expressway) and I-390 (Lockport Expressway). The speed limit through Amherst is the reduced 55 mph as opposed to the higher 65 mph, which motorist do not often notice. Canadian drivers from just over the border often do not adjust properly between kilometers per hour and miles per hour. Tickets on the interstate highways are typically issued by Troop A of the New York State Police. The Amherst Police Department patrol the local roads and issue traffic tickets as well. All Amherst tickets are scheduled in the Town of Amherst Justice Court.
