About the Manhattan South TVB

The New York Department of Motor Vehicles founded the Traffic Violations Bureau in 1969. The DMV’s intention was for the TVB to manage the massive number of traffic tickets. Since the amount of violations listed in the New York State Traffic Violations Laws (NYS VTL) have grown since then, it has become even easier to get a traffic ticket in NYC.

Today, the Manhattan South TVB handles many of the same duties it had in the past. That means managing all non-criminal moving violations in downtown Manhattan. That does not include parking tickets or violations that may result in criminal penalties.
