East Otto Town Court

The town of East Otto was founded in 1854. As its name implies, the town was formed from the eastern half of the town of Otto, which at the time covered most of the north-central chunk of the county. East Otto was one of the last towns to be formed in Cattaraugus County.

The East Otto Union School, which currently serves as the East Otto Town Court, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

East Otto is the home to Griffis Sculpture Park (6902 Mill Valley Road, East Otto; ). The park has many massive metal statues and sculptures, the art park has a unique and large affection. Much of the art is not only nice to look at, but some of it can be climbed on as well.

Consequences
Traffic violations at their core are crimes that have the potential to carry severe legal consequences: points on an individual’s driving record, jail time, and fines. And with these legal consequences come practical consequences on an individual’s everyday life: like higher insurance premiums and temporary or permanent suspensions of their driver’s license. These consequences apply to both New York residents, drivers who are residents of most other states, and residents of Canada. By choosing to drive on New York roadways, all of the above-mentioned individuals could be subjected to penalties. The following is a list of examples of violations and the points, fines, and jail time that they carry with them for an individual’s first conviction (NYVTL 1180(d); 1212; 1225 (c); and 1144 (a)):

Violations Points Fines (Min.-Max.) Jail Time (Min.-Max.)

Along with these consequences, individuals convicted of traffic violations will likely be required to pay Surcharges ranging from $88 – $93 to the DMV. Second and third time offenders face higher fines and jail sentences. And if an individual commits three speeding and/or misdemeanor traffic violations within eighteen months their license will be revoked for six months. Any violation triggering the imposition of five points or more is considered a serious driving offense. And any individual with six points or more on their driving record will be classified as a bad driver and fined $100 per year for three years by the DMV. However, these consequences can be mitigated or potentially avoided with the assistance of an experience traffic violation defense attorney.
