Buffalo Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB) Closing: Good News for Drivers

by Seth Azria on 7/28/2015

Buffalo TVB Closed July 1, 2015

On July 1, 2015, the Buffalo Traffic Violations Bureau ceased handling traffic cases for the traffic tickets issued in the City of Buffalo. Instead, the tickets will be handled by the newly formed Buffalo Traffic Violations Agency located in Buffalo City Hall. See NY DMV announcement.

Good News for Drivers: No More "Plea or Try" in Buffalo

Buffalo’s move away from the TVB system gives drivers ticketed in Buffalo the same opportunity for plea bargaining that drivers have when ticketed in most other parts of the state. New York City and Rochester still have the TVB system that forces drivers to either plead guilty or have a trial but does not offer any reductions via plea bargaining.

Opportunity for Plea Bargaining and Reductions of Buffalo Traffic Tickets

The Buffalo Traffic Violations Agency judges will have the same authority to accept plea bargains as the city, town, and village court judges around the state. This is a big change for drivers ticketed in the City of Buffalo who now may seek a reduction of the charges that they face. See Buffalo News; Channel 4 News.

For the City of Buffalo, the move away from the state entity to a local adjudication of the tickets could mean as much as $2,000,000 in annual revenue.

As traffic defense attorneys, we are pleased that the City of Buffalo has decided to make this move. Please feel free to call us (315) 364-1155 or email about your traffic tickets issued in the City of Buffalo.

Excellent working with Seth...Seth assisted us with navigating the court system in NY state. The speeding ticket had no information and the city's documentation was too complicated and obscure for us to comprehend. Our case was concluded very much to our satisfaction. I highly recommend Seth to anyone who receives a speeding ticket in NY.

I received a speeding violation back in December 2020 and is now dismissed. Seth Azria and firm has done an excellent job in getting the ticket dismissed successfully. The entire staff has been very professional, quick and responsive. I really appreciate their service and give them a 5 star. I would be happy to refer them to my friends.

Thanks
Ticket resolution

Mr. Seth Azria handled my case competently and efficiently. I did not have to appear in court, which made the entire process really painless. He was successful in negotiating a reduction of a speeding ticket to a no-point non-moving violation, for which I am truly grateful. Even though I had a very good record prior to the event, that ticket would have impacted my finances quite negatively. Thanks to Mr. Azria this did not happen.

Great experience, very efficient and timely. Got reduced to 0 points - they handled the entire process once receiving my documents. Highly recommend, especially if you live out of state.
