About Operation Slow Down
Operation Slow Down, a public awareness and enforcement initiative against speeding and reckless drivers, was launched in February 2011. The purpose of the public safety program is to educate residents and raise awareness about the dangers of speeding and provide increased enforcement. Through the year, different streets in Clarkstown have been selected for targeted enforcement, resulting in many drivers being ticketed.
