Caneadea Town Court

Caneadea Town Court is located on Route 19 in the town of Caneadea, New York. The town of Caneadea is located in Allegany County, New York.

A town in Allegany County of New York, United States, Caneadea is located in the county’s northeast quadrant. Its name ‘Caneadea’ is from the natives which means ‘where the heavens rest on earth.’ Caneadea was formed in March 11, 1808 and covers its presently reduced area along with territory that is now with Bolivar, Belfast, Clarksville, Rushford, Cuba, Friendship, Wirt and New Hudson.

The town of Caneadea is an interior town. It lies northwest of the county’s center and to the north, it is bounded by Hume, Allen to the east, Rushford to the west and Belfast to the south. One of the notable locations in the town is Genesee River which forms a distinguishing geographical feature called the “great angle” with the river changing its direction abruptly from northwest to northeast course.

The town’s name got it from the name of an old village found on the bluff over Genesee River’s east side which is now opposite of the hamlet Houghton. The first settlers came around 1800 and the town was founded from part of town of Angelica back in 1808. But then, Caneadea’s territory was largely reduced to form other towns.

On April 5, 1808 at Jedediah Nobles’ house, the first town meeting was held and that was when officers were elected which scattered across Caneadea’s territory. Compared to any other town in the Allegany County, Caneadea has more connection to American and Indian history. It is also in this town that Iroquois Confederacy’s renowned “western door” is located.

In the river at the Caneadea Center, a large stream that comes from the west empties into it which has been called Caneadea Creek since long ago. Rushford Lake, a small lake, is found partly within the town’s western side. There’s also Shongo Brook which has its source from the town’s extreme eastern part.

Also in the east part of the town, the stream Vandermark, is well stocked with wide variety of fish including brook trout. At the northwestern part, another water covering 25 to 40 acres is called Bull Head Pond or the Moss Lake because of large quantities of moss there.

Advantages of Hiring A Local Attorney

The John C. Nelson law firm receives calls from attorneys across New York State asking me to ‘cover’ a traffic ticket for him or her. This is because not all traffic tickets can be handled by mail. Most of the time, I can appear on my client’s behalf or even handle the matter by mail, but sometimes courts require the attorney to be present in court. For example the courts of Limestone, Perry or the Village of Ellicottville can not be handled by mail, attorney must be present.

When you hire an attorney from New York City to appear on a traffic ticket that was issued hours away from the big city, they call a local attorney, such as the John C. Nelson law firm.

Sometimes the big city attorney calls the local prosecutor who offers a plea to a points violation instead of a parking ticket. The big city attorneys that advertise on the the TV, radio and internet are many hours away and have no interest in taking the case to trial and can’t argue motions.

It’s more advantages to hire a local attorney, who knows the law, the locale and can be present at the local court, when needed.

Did you receive a ticket in Caneadea Town Court?

In most instances in life, the more points you get, the better it is. However, that’s not the case when it comes to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles issuing points on your license for certain types of traffic violation convictions. When it comes to a clean driving record, you don’t want any points or as few as possible. Having points on your license can increase your automobile insurance, it can prevent you from having certain jobs that requires you to drive and it could lead to license suspension or revocation.

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