Grove Town Court

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

Grove is a town in Allegany County in New York, United States in the northeastern part of the county and in the northwest of the city of Hornell. It was also first established as “Church Tract” in 1827, a part of the town of Nunda, Livingston County. Grove lies in the county’s north border to the east of the county’s center.

The town adopted the name of the Grove in 1828 which included the town of Granger until April 18, 1838. The name grove was possibly given to the town based on the large number of frees all over the town. The town of Grove is bounded by Livingston County to the north and the east as well as the town of Burns, the town of Birdsall to the south and Granger to the west. Grove’s surface is rough and hilly with valleys and ridges.

The east and west part of the town is permeated by branches of the Black and Canaseraga creeks while the Cashaqua Creek flows to the town’s northwestern part. To the eastern part of the town is also where the Chautauqua Valley is located. The town’s soil is gravelly loam in the valleys while the hills have clay loam soil with hardpan subsoil.

Due to the fact that the town has close proximity to Central New York, Erie and Western railroads, the shipment of products is greatly facilitated in the town. However, the town is purely agricultural without manufacturing industry or any outstanding historical features. Grove also has decreasing population which is listed to be only 548 in 2019 census.

In the center of the town, Brewers Corners is located by the Johnson Hill Road as well as Ridge Road. The hamlet grove is located near the south town line while the hamlet Rosses is located at the north town line. There is also the hamlet Swain at the town’s northeast corner, a community named after 19th century developer and surveyor, Samuel Swain.

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.

Speeding (1 – 10 MPH over posted limit):3 points
Speeding (11 – 20 MPH over posted limit):4 points

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.
