Hume Town Court

Hume Town Court is located on North Genesee Street in the town of Fillmore, New York. The town of Hume is located in Allegany County, New York.

The Town of Hume is a town in Allegany County, New York, United States. At some point, the town was called ‘Cold Creek’ then it was changed to Hume. The change of name was to honor the British historian and philosopher David Hume.

It is bounded to the north by the town of Pike and by Genesee Falls in the Wyoming County, then of Granger to the east with the Genesee River forming the boundary while the Transit Meridian or Holland Purchase’s eastern line is along the southern part, to the west it is bounded by Centerville while to the south, it is Caneadea.

The town’s largest settlement is now the hamlet Filmore which was formerly a village. In December 14, 1993, the village was dissolved by vote of the residents. The town’s first settler was Roger Mills and he arrived in town in 1806. Hume was established from part of Pike, a town in Wyoming County back in 1822. In the eastern part of the town, the Genesee River flows.

At the first settlement, Hume was part of the extensive town of Angelica. Then Nunda was created on March 11, 1808 with Hume being part of it until March 6, 1818. It was than time when Pike was created and from there the town of Hume was created. Hume’s surface is mostly hilly in the uplands which are watered by Genesee River and town creeks East Koy, Six Town, Wiscoy and Cold. The Sixth Town creek discharges into Rush Creek and Cold Creek as well as several other smaller streams on the east.

On the site of these streams, there are many mil sites found such that of the Wiscoy which is known in the country to afford one of the finest water privileges. Locations in town include the hamlet of Fillmore near Genesee River’s west bank, hamlet of Hume, Mills Mills to the north of Fillmore, hamlet of Wiscoy and hamlet of Rossburg to the northeast of Fillmore.

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

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.
