The Village Justice Court is hereby authorized to establish a Traffic Violations Bureau to assist the Court in the disposition of offenses in relation to traffic violations.
Such Traffic Violations Bureau, when established, is authorized to dispose of violations of traffic laws, ordinances, rules and regulations, including parking violations, when such offenses do not constitute the traffic infraction known as speeding or a misdemeanor or felony, by permitting a person charged with an offense, within the limitations stated in Article 14-B of the General Municipal Law, to answer, at any time between the receipt of the summons and a time 48 hours prior to the return day thereof, at such Traffic Violations Bureau, either in person or by written general or special power of attorney, by paying a prescribed fine and, in writing, waiving a hearing in court, pleading guilty to the charge and authorizing the person in charge of the Bureau to make such a plea and pay such a fine in Court.
Such Traffic Violations Bureau shall have the powers and shall be subject to the limitations set forth in Article 14-B of the General Municipal Law and shall be subject to such additional limitations as the Court establishing it may designate.
The procedure before such Traffic Violations Bureau shall be that provided in said Article 14-B of the General Municipal Law.
