The Queens South Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB) office is part of the NYS TVB system. The TVB is an administrative agency (it is part of the DMV) that handles NYC traffic tickets as well as tickets issued in parts of Suffolk County, Rochester and Buffalo.
The Queens South TVB office is located in Jamaica, Queens. Originally settled under Dutch rule in 1656, the English took over in 1664 and renamed it “Jameco” (or Yamecah) after the name they gave to the local Native Americans that lived in the area. When the British divided New York into counties in 1683, Queens became one of the original counties of NY and Jamaica became the county seat of Queens.
Don’t expect to negotiate or seek a plea bargaining at the Queens South TVB. If you would like to avoid points and/or conviction for a particular NY traffic violation, you will need to enter a not guilty plea and set a hearing date. With very few, specific exceptions, your verdict will be either be guilty as charged or a complete dismissal of the charge.
