punishment  and  shall not affect or impair the credibility as a witness

committed where such acts and violations would, if committed  subsequent

the term  "traffic  infraction"  as  herein  defined.  Except  in  those
portions  of  Suffolk  county for which a district court has been estab-

thousand  BUT LESS THAN TWO HUNDRED TWENTY THOUSAND in which administra-
tive tribunals have heretofore been established AND  OUTSIDE  OF  CITIES
