Traffic Enforcement & Prosecution


The major thoroughfare in the village of Sloatsburg is I-87, which runs the length of the village. Enforcement is handled by the NYS Police from "Troop T." Enforcement throughout the remainder of the village is handled by the Town of Ramapo Police. On the major highways, stationary radar and laser speed detection are widely used, and tickets are typically written for 10 mph over the limit . On local roads, the village speed limit is usually 30 mph, so most speeding tickets are written for speeds less than 10 mph over the limit. In addition, the police regularly look for miscellaneous vehicle and traffic violations to initiate traffic stops.


Traffic Court


Both justices have "traffic calendars," which are devoted to adjudicating traffic tickets.  The NYS Police are prohibited from negotiating plea bargains on traffic violations.  As a result, a Special Prosecutor handles tickets written by the NYS police.  95% of state police tickets are adjudicated through plea bargains with the prosecutor. The Prosecutor and both judges are reasonable about plea bargains as long as the speed is not too high.


Local police officers generally prosecute their own tickets, though the prosecutor may substitute for them.  Again, most tickets are resolved through plea bargains.


Expect a line of people waiting to talk to the prosecutor about a plea bargain.  A 1 hour wait is typical. Attorneys are permitted to appear without their clients being present for traffic court.

Criminal Law Enforcement & Prosecution


All criminal prosecutions are handled by the Rockland County District Attorney's Office.  The Rockland DA's office has taken a fairly hard line on DWI prosecutions. There are typically more than 1000 alcohol-related driving arrests for impaired or intoxicated driving (DWI, DWAI, DWAI-D) in Rockland County every year.  Both the NYS Police and the Rockland County Sheriff's Department made numerous arrests.  Most arrests occurred after dark with many taking place after midnight.  Police officers assume that many drivers who are out after midnight have consumed alcohol and or drugs.  As a result they are looking for any lawful reason to pull drivers over in order to investigate possible DWI incidents.  Alcohol checkpoints were established several times by state and local police.


In addition to DWI and DWAI, numerous arrests were made for Driving While Impaired by Drugs, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation and Driving With a Suspended Registration.  All of these offenses are "criminal" violations of the law and, as a result are prosecuted by the Rockland County District Attorney's office.


Both judges in Sloatsburg Village Court are attorneys.
