Porter, New York
Porter is a town in Niagara County, New York. It is the most northwestern part of the Western New York region. The northern town line is Lake Ontario. The western town line is the Niagara River, which is also the border between Canada and the United States. Porter is roughly 30 miles, as the crow flies, from Toronto, Canada. As of January of 2022, the town’s population was 7,105. The town consists of several hamlets known as Blairville, Fillmore Chapel, Porter Center, Ransomville and Towers Corners. There is one village located on the town’s western border known as Youngstown. It is the main population area of the town and the location of the town offices, including the town court.
Traffic Tickets in Porter, New York
Porter is home to several tourist attractions. This means many motorists going through the town are not locals and not familiar with the roads or paying attention to the speed limit signs. The result of this is numerous traffic stops. All traffic charges in Porter are adjudicated at the Town of Porter Justice Court located in the Village of Youngstown. The town roads are monitored by “Trooper A” of the New York State Police and the Niagara County Sheriff's Department. The Village of Youngstown employs their own police department who are authorized to conduct traffic stops for violations on village roads.
Much of Porter’s northern area consists of state and county Routes. Running parallel to Lake Ontario is the east-west bound New York State Route 18 (Lake Road). Entering the town from the east, it passes through the lakeside communities then turns south when it reaches the Fourmile Creek State Park. At that point it continues south until it leaves town, but not before passing through Blairville. Following the Niagara River is New York State Route 18F (Lower River Road). NYS-18F runs north-south and connects the Village of Youngstown with the Youngstown and Collingwood Estates. The remaining east town area is mostly served by New York State Route 93 (Youngstown Lockport Road) and smaller county and local roads. NYS-93 runs east-west from Youngstown to Ransomville in the far southeast corner of town.
The source of most traffic tickets in Porter is the Niagara Scenic Parkway. The parkway runs north-south with two lanes in each direction, divided by a grassy median. The parkway’s northern terminus is where it meets NYS-18, near Fourmile Creek State Park. The speed limit is 55 miles per hour and this highway is closely monitored for speeding.
