There is indeed a statute of limitations. A prosecution for a traffic infraction must be commenced within one year after the commission thereof. (CPL 30.10 [2] [d].) But the statute of limitations does not apply to the facts you mentioned, which are quoted below, because the prosecution in your case began upon the issuance of the traffic summonses you received, which obviously occurred within one year after the commission of the traffic infractions. Your best course of action is to pay the required fees to the DMV, so that you can get your license reinstated.

I had some violations in Poughkeepsie New York in 2002 and they still will not give me my license without paying $170. Is there no Statute of limitations?

In New York City as in other cities, traffic tickets do not have a statute of limitations. You have been informed of the violation and penalty.

Once issued traffic tickets are not subject to a statue of limitations. The offender has already been informed of the violation.

Traffic tickets do not fall under a statute of limitations. Once New York has issued a ticket, you have been properly informed of the charges against you. You can properly prepare a defense, so the purpose of the limit no longer applies.

There is none. Tickets have already informed you of the violation. A statute of limitations is to prevent someone from charging you with something years after it happened. You've already been charged!

As such, a traffic ticket does not expire and is not subject to a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is to prevent one from being accused of a crime when the witnesses may no longer be available and defense difficult. In this case, you have already been notified of the violation and have not defended against it in the time allotted. A traffic ticket is a notice of violation. Some jurisdictions will stop trying to collect, or declare on amnesty on tickets on a specific time frame.

Tickets are notification of the charge. Tickets in New York and other states do not have a statute of limitations. However, there may be a limit as to how long they can collect on it, but most places don't pass a law preventing them from collecting the fine.

Once a ticket has been issued, there is no statute of limitations. The violation has occurred, the violator has been notified and now it is just a matter of taking care of the penalty.

A ticket serves as notification of the violation. So the normal statute of limitations will not apply. The time the jurisdiction may collect is set by New York City.

There is none. Kidnapping is a Class A felony in the state of New York, and like every offense in that category, does not have a statute of limitations attached to it.
