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.

I look at myself as a very successful person in life. But I am nothing if I can't provide for your family. I was heading down that path with two speeding tickets to my name with very high points. My means of providing is driving over 100 miles daily. Many thanks goes out to the office of Azria & Bruffett Law Firm. Mr. David is such a wonderful person even advise you how to get things done. When you talk about communication with clients - Azria & Bruffett does it the best. I love these people.
I highly recommend this Law Firm if you have a traffic violation they are A1.

Take it from a Fellow Attorney, Seth Azria is wonderful and gets the job done.

I am an attorney working in the lower Hudson Valley. I had an unfortunate brush with the law on my birthday of all days! which resulted in my receipt of a speeding ticket en-route to a wedding in Buffalo. I'd never had any other infractions on my record and this offense is certainly not an area in which I specialize. I was very upset and worried but immediately upon calling Mr. Azria all of my fears and concerns melted away. Mr. Azria was able to plead my ticket down to a minor violation with no points and a small fee to the Court. Mr. Azria was quick, efficient and responsive. I never had a moment of worry that my case was being neglected. Mr. Azria and his team answered any questions that I had and kept me informed throughout the process. I could not have asked for a better team in my corner and you can't beat the price. You would have thought that I spent a small fortune for the quality of service that I received. Take it from me, Mr. Azria is the attorney you want representing you.

I worked together with Mr. Seth Azria on a traffic ticket and my ticket was just dismissed. I would highly recommend Mr. Seth and his company. I deeply admire him for his professionalism, responsiveness and positive result. Thank you again and wish you all the best.

Fantastic firm! I was traveling 3 hours away when I got a ticket and Azria & Bruffett took care of everything! I only had to answer a few emails! They were in constant contact with me throughout the entire process and got my ticket reduced to no points. I give them the highest recommendation!
