Albany County, New York
Albany County is a county in New York State. It is the center of the Capital District Region (or simply Capital Region). Most of the county centers around the City of Albany, which is the capital of New York State. It includes the main commercial hub, government offices, and its residential suburbs. Albany County is a relatively small county, but with its high density, is also one the more populated counties.
Albany began as a commercial hub because it was in the area where the east-west Mohawk River met the north-south Hudson River. Now its main significance is the City of Albany. The city serves as the capital of New York State, hosting the state legislative bodies, the Governor’s Office, and the majority of state agencies.
Traffic Tickets in Albany County
Like in other counties, the majority of traffic tickets originate on highways and most tickets are for speeding. The local courts in Albany handle a lot of traffic cases. This is because Albany County is situated at a major crossroads of the northeast. The most important being Interstate 87 and Interstate 90, which meet in Albany County. Both are both part of the New York State Thruway system.
Highways traverse cities, towns, and villages. The exact location of the alleged violation will determine which municipality retains jurisdiction over the case. As you drive on the highway, the jurisdiction can change every few miles in some areas. This is important because no two courts are the same. Each court has unique prosecutors, judges, and court staff. A traffic ticket is best handled by an attorney familiar with the nuances of the specific court that has jurisdiction over your case.
