Arkwright Town Court

Arkwright Town Court is located on Center Road in the town of Fredonia, New York.

The town of Arkwright is in Chautauqua County, New York. The town’s population is just over 1,000. The town of Arkwright is named after Richard Arkwright, the inventor of the spinning frame, which succeeding the transition to water power was renamed the water frame. Arkwright also patented a rotary carding engine that turned raw cotton into cotton lap.

Arkwright is in the northeast section of Chautauqua County and is south eastern of the city of Dunkirk.

Canadaway Creek passes through the south section of the town. Arkwright Falls is a beautiful and isolate waterfall along Canadaway Creek. The waterfall is private property, but the creek can be entered through the County Park on Ball Road. The creek is free to public occupancy due to the New York State Public Right of Navigation. You can travel to the Arkwright Falls by walking the creek upstream from where the trail on the public property ends at the mouth of the creek.

Arkwright Town Court personnel are prohibited by law from providing you with any legal advice.  They will attempt to guide you through the process; but if you have legal concerns, you should seek the advice of counsel.

When playing a sport, typically the more points you get, the better. However, the New York Department of Motor Vehicles issues points on your license for certain types of traffic violation convictions. And like golf, when it comes to points on your license, the less points you have, the better.

New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 1180 deals with speed limits and sets out the consequences imposed by a court upon a conviction. The fine that a court may assess is based on the specific traffic violation stated on the ticket, the ticketed speed, and the number of previous convictions.

Some of the most common violations under the DMV point system:

Speeding (1 – 10 MPH over posted limit): 3 points
Speeding (11 – 20 MPH over posted limit): 4 points
Speeding (21 – 30 MPH over posted limit): 6 points
Speeding (31 – 40 MPH over posted limit): 8 points
Speeding (more than 40 MPH over posted limit): 11 points
Reckless driving: 5 points
Failing to stop for a school bus: 5 points
Following too closely (tailgating): 4 points
Inadequate brakes: 4 points
Inadequate brakes while driving an employer’s vehicle: 2 points
Failing to yield right-of-way: 3 points
Violation involving a traffic signal, stop sign, or yield sign 3 points
Railroad-crossing violation: 3 points
Improper passing, unsafe lane change, driving left of center, or driving in wrong direction: 3 points

Safety restraint violation involving a person under 16 years old: 3 points
Texting while driving: 5 points

Did you receive a ticket in Arkwright Town Court?

It is not uncommon for an individual to attempt to defend a traffic violation by themselves without knowing the procedure and customs of the local court system. However, oftentimes a person who represents themselves risks missing important deadlines, notices, and court proceedings because they are not familiar with the court rules and legal documents involved in any given case. Without an understanding of local courtroom rules and customs, people that choose to represent themselves, due to their lack of knowledge of these rules and customs, often, unintentionally offend a judge or district attorney.
