Clarkstown Declares Some Success Slowing Down Drivers

CLARKSTOWN, NY (WCBS 880) – Clarkstown’s plan to rid some of its streets of dangerous drivers is proving to be a success. Last month, the town announced a public-awareness initiative called “Operation Slowdown” which aims to combat speeding and reckless driving.

Town Supervisor Alex Gromack says officers identified 25 specific streets that appear to have the most problems with speeding. 

During the first month of Operation Slowdown — which targeted drivers on Kings Highway, Townline Road, Laurel Road, North Broadway and New Clarkstown Road — 203 tickets were issued. Each month, police will shif their focus to another set of five roads.

In March, traffic enforcement will be increased on Bardonia Road, Prospect Street, Rose Road, Old Haverstraw Road, and Old Route 304.

    Congratulations Clarkstown for extracting even more from your citizens. As if the current economic climate isn’t difficult enough, you found a way to make it more difficult. Taxes aren’t high enough in Clarkstown???? Maybe you should consider a paycut for your donut eating, nap taking, early retiring with fake disability claims, glorified meter maids. I sure hope you got a few of those dangerous speeders for seat belt violations while you were at it.

    What a waste of time. If so many people are “breaking the law”, it sounds like the city of Clarkstown needs to do an engineering study to see if the speed limits are too low.
