They tell everyone because its not about making money Smitty is right its about slowing people down. My pet peeve is not "no turn on red" its about blowing thru red.

I'd like to see them target drivers that don't stop for a stopped school bus. There have been two accidents at my child's bus stop because of this. In both cases, the poor driver that did the right thing and stopped was hit by a driver not paying attention and slamming into the car ahead. Both times, multiple cars were involved and cars was crushed.

How about target highway ave in congers and ridge rd in valley cottage. People use these connecting roads to by pass rt 303 traffic and the stop lights throughout the day.

I know they are busy, but I see people speeding past patrol cars all the time, EVERYWHERE. Releasing the list of streets may slow down the people that read it. Nyack had an issue years ago and stop signs were put on the street. Now the residents complain about the stop signs, but it worked.
