Traffic Tickets in Somerset, New York

Traffic violations issued in Somerset often originate on the busier roads in town. New York State Route 18 (Lake Road) is the town’s arterial road, crossing east-west. It crosses through several counties, running parallel with Lake Ontario. The speed limit fluctuates between 55 mph, when going through rural areas, and 35 mph, when going through more developed areas. The change of speed limit often goes unnoticed by motorists not from the area. Near the center of town, New York State Route 148 (Quaker Road) intersects with NYS-18. NYS-148 heads south and passes through the Village of Barker before continuing past the south town border. Most of the remaining town area is served by smaller county routes and local roads.

The Somerset Town Court located in the Village of Barker handles all legal matters in town. This includes traffic tickets. Traffic tickets in Somerset are issued by “Trooper A” of the New York State Police and the Niagara County Sheriff's Department.
