State Route 17 B near State Route 35 North

Bethel, New YorkAug 03, 20060 Comments

Along Rte 17B approximately halfway between Monticello and Cochecton. A stretch of road for a mile or two where the speed limit drops from 55 to 40 MPH. This speed zone flanks the south side of a lake so the increased vacation traffic during the summer months probably warrants a reduced speed. However, enforcement is frequent. My particular ticket was a trumped up charge, based on the placing of construction zone signs but this is presumably a temporary situation. Nearly everyone who attended court the night I was there was offered the opportunity to plead guilty to a parking violation. This town appears to make a significant amount of money from traffic enforcement.
