Genesee Town Court

Genesee Town Court is located on Main Street in the town of Little Genesee, New York. The town of Genesee is located in Allegany County, New York.

A town in Allegany County in New York, United States, Genesee is located southeast of Olean and in the county’s southwest corner. When the first settlement was made within the territory of the present-day Genesee, it was still part of the town of Friendship. Then in 1822, the town of Cuba was established from Friendship and Genesee was part of that new town.

Soon, it set off from Cuba and became Genesee 905. The first settlers in the town came in around 1823 and it was 1830 when Genesee is finally formed from Cuba. The early economy of Genesee then was mostly based on harvesting from the forests but at around 1890, the oil production began. For the most part, Genesee’s soil is gravelly but in some places it is sandy while in other parts it is clayey loam.

The town’s surface is quite uneven which consists of only narrow valleys in between ranges of hills which are both high and steep. The town’s highest summits are claimed to reach about 1000 to 1400 feet over the valleys. Many of the hills in the town have been cleared partially while there are some homes which have been built in valleys. A hamlet known as “Rock City” is located to a little to the northeast of Genesee’s town center.

The Rock City is so named because of the conglomerate of huge boulders in the hamlet. It is said that some of these boulders are even large enough to be size of dwellings which makes it appear like collection of houses in the distance. The streams of the town of Genesee were the Little Genesee, Deer, Windfall, Dodge’s, Oswayo and the creeks include Wolf creeks, Bell, Streeter, Butternut as well as a number of nameless brooks that are being fed by living springs.

Genesee 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

Did you receive a ticket in Genesee 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.
