Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB) is different from other traffic courts in New York State. There is no plea bargaining. If you plead not guilty, you have a trial and you may just lose. We have been told that the officer gets three chances to appear, and they usually show up by the third time. A good lawyer can cross examine the cop, and sometimes they can be beaten. Appeals go to an Appeals unit in Albany. Brooklyn Traffic Court (this is North, there is a South also) is one high volume court - if you can call it a court.
About the area
TVB is in the DMV, at or near the corner of Flatbush and Atlantic (and 4th). Brooklyn is a borough of New York City. With 2.6 million residents, well, it is pretty darn huge. Imagine how busy the TVB must be if there are only 2 traffic courts for a place with 2.6 million residents. Read more about Brooklyn in Wikipedia
Hours of Operation 8:30 am - 4:00 pm; Thursdays until 6 pm. Call center hours: 8 am to 4 pm
Traffic Violations Bureau cases are presided over by an Administrative Law Judge or ALJ.
Officers prosecute their own tickets. Some attorneys say that the ALJ (the judge) leans a bit for the police, making this a two-on-one affair.
Type Of Cases Speeding tickets and other traffic violations (no parking tickets)
