I made an appearance in the Southold Town Justice Court on
Monday afternoon of this past week when traffic and speeding ticket cases are
heard. As I was returning from the court and driving west on Route 48, I noticed
one police car monitoring traffic in the 55 mph zone and THREE patrol cars in
the area where the speed limit drops to 45 mph. One patrol car was stationed in
the median and the others were off to the side of the roadway. This number of
patrol cars within a span of approximately 5 miles was pretty extraordinary and
serves as an indication that the Town of Southold has strengthened its enforcement
of the speed limits along Route 48 (particularly in the 45 mph zone) which is a fairly heavily trafficked road
used by commercial drivers and drivers heading to the ferry in Orient.
We represent drivers who receive speeding tickets and other
traffic tickets which are returnable to the Southold Town Justice Court. Drivers with
such traffic tickets may contact our office for a free consultation on the best
way to respond to the ticket.
