New York State Route 430 (also known as Station Road and Main Street) spans east-west across the town. NYS-430 passes through Findley Lake and intersects with NY-426 near the hamlet center.

Some motorists are under the impression that they should not dispute traffic tickets that are correct. This is a mistake. Absent unique circumstances, all charges that will go on your driving record should be disputed. By filing a “Not Guilty” plea, you are merely stating you want the prosecutor to prove the charge, not that you in fact were not speeding. You are not lying or crossing any ethical boundaries.
