The Busiest Traffic Courts

Let’s get right to it. The busiest traffic courts on are:1. Nassau County District Court – 1st DistrictThis is really the general criminal court for the western half of Long Island. We include criminal courts in our directory because they also handle DWI offenses. The Nassau County Traffic Court is not far down the list. The page was viewed 3184 times in the first quarter of 2009.2. Jersey City Municipal CourtThe Jersey City court is a perennial leader on our site. There must be a ton of speeders coming out of downtown Manhattan through the Holland Tunnel. The tunnel feeds into US-1/US-9 and to I-78 going south. Over 3000 views. This court was the #1 court on our site in 2008.3. Alhambra Superior CourtWith just under 2900 views, the Alhambra court is obviously a happening place. I-10 runs along the southern edge of the area, coming east out of downtown Los Angeles. That’s our best guess as to the major source of cases here.4. Moreno Valley Superior CourtMoreno Valley is a newcomer to our top courts, and it’s a bit surprising. This California court is only a little behind Alhambra with over 2700 views. It’s just east of Riverside with I-215 and the Moreno Valley Freeway. These highways must be carrying a lot of speeders.5. Nassau County Traffic CourtOver 2500 views for this one, discussed above in #1. Formal title for the Court is Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency.6. Amherst Town CourtAmherst is a suburb northeast of Buffalo on the I-290. The volume is probably driven by a combination of US-Canada travel, Niagara Falls tourism, and activity from the SUNY Buffalo campus. Also over 2500 views for the first three months of 2009.7. Albany City Court – Traffic PartThe city of Albany is the capital of New York State and the home of our website. The Albany traffic court was one of the first in the directory. Unlike some of the courts above, this court hears only traffic cases. I-87 and I-90 meet on the edge of the city and both highways send a lot of speeders here. Other major highways include US-20, US-9, and a great speed trap as the Washington Avenue drops from 45 to 30.8. Philadelphia Traffic CourtThe police in Philly made over 350,000 traffic stops in 2008. All of them go to this one court. Amazing! The judges have gotten quite a bit of scrutiny. One was reprimanded. In a recent campaign several candidates had unpaid parking tickets and one judge had his car registered outside the city. At least they got rid of Terrell Owens. The city may be falling off though, as this court used to be #1 on our site and was #3 for 2008.9. White Plains City CourtI-287 (The Cross Westchester Expressway) runs along the north edge of the city, while the Hutchinson River Parkway runs along the east side. That’s probably why this page had over 2400 views. Down from #5 in 2008.10. Victorville Superior CourtJust short of 2300 views, the Victorville Court climbed into our top 10 list. I-15 runs through here on its way to Barstow and Las Vegas going northeast out of the LA area.Falling out of our top 10 list from 2008 were Paterson Municipal Court in New Jersey, Syracuse City Court and the Queens North Traffic Court in New York City. New York City divides its traffic cases across seven or eight “Traffic Violations Bureau” facilities, which helps explain why none of them are in the top 10.
