Fight your traffic violation in
Ellicottville, New York


Ellicottville is a town and village in Cattaraugus County, New York. The village is within the town. As of July of 2020, the town population was 1,615. The town has its own police force that is supplemented by county sheriffs and state troopers. Ellicottville is home to two ski resorts, which brings a lot of winter visitors. A large portion of visitors are from out of state and Canada.


Traffic violations in the village and town of Ellicottville are adjudicated in the Ellicottville Town Court. There used to be a village court for village cases, but this court was disbanded in 2019. Now, village cases are adjudicated in the town court.

A majority of Ellicottville town court cases stem from traffic stops on the US-219 and NY 242, the two main roads in the town. The two roads meet in the village of Ellicottville, where they are called Jefferson Street and Washington Street.

In the outskirts of the town, the speed limit on the US-219 is 55 mph. When the road goes into the village the speed limit is reduced to 30 mph. However, motorists often fail to notice the reduced speed limit. This part of the road is an unfortunate speed trap for numerous motorists that are not from the area.
