I must say that I am shocked to see people racing through shopping center lots with little regard for pedestrians. I was exiting Marshalls in Nanuet and some rich old hoot in his black Mercedes Benz had to be zipping along doing 30 mph in the lot. I made it very clear to him that he needed to SLOW THE HELL DOWN. I HATE ROCKLAND COUNTY.

If speeders in parking lots make you hate Rockland County, I feel sorry for you because you'll never find any county in which to live.

You are right Rich. I hate New York.

There is no evidence the drive was speeding. The poor woman apparently stepped in front of the car and was struck. It is very sad.

Not even a month ago an 88 year old woman was killed crossing Route 9W in West Haverstraw. What is going on? I hope this gets a full investigation, we still don't know why the woman was allowed to cross Route 9W after getting off a bus on the wrong side of the road in the dark alone. Rockland County has a lot of well paid men and women in law enforcement, let's get to bottom what caused both deaths.
