Traffic Ticket Update
Barker maintains one of the busiest traffic courts in all of Broome County. This is due in part of the large number of New York State Police Officers that patrol their municipal roads and State Highways.
We often hear from many drivers from Canada, New York City, and other passersby that find themselves on the wrong side of the law with a hefty speeding ticket.
A contributing factor to the high volume of tickets issued can be attributed to I-81 passing through the heart of town. The portion of I-81 that runs through Barker is patrolled by the New York State Police.
