Officer Michael Califano
Senator Chuck Schumer was urging state and federal highway regulators to come up with safety enhancements following the death last month of a Nassau County highway patrolman.
The 44-year old officer died while conducting a traffic stop Friday night when he was rammed from behind by another driver.
A truck driver accused of falling asleep at the wheel and killing a Long Island police officer appeared in court Tuesday. Bail was set at $90,000 bond and $47,500 cash for John Kaley.
The wake for 44-year-old Officer Michael Califano has been scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday at the Massapequa Funeral Home.
