Traffic Tickets in Onondaga County
The City of Syracuse and its suburbs have the busiest traffic courts in Onondaga County. This is because of the interstate highways that pass through the area.

The I-81 runs north-south through the entire county. The I-481 branches off the I-81 and circles Syracuse via its suburbs. A plethora of state, county and US Routes run through the area as well.
The interstates are exclusively patrolled by the New York State Police. Tickets issued on the interstates are adjudicated by local courts. Which court you must appear in depends on where on the interstate you received your ticket. Speeding is the most issued charge on highways.
