Town Launches Operation Slow Down

 

(New City, NY) - Town of Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack in conjunction with the Town Board and the Clarkstown Police Department is announcing the start of “Operation Slow Down,” a new strict enforcement initiative against speeding and reckless drivers throughout the Town.

 

“Our Traffic Officers have identified specific streets in the Town of Clarkstown, based on volume and speed, that require added attention to ensure our resident’s safety,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “The purpose of Operation Slow Down is to educate our residents and raise awareness about the dangers of speeding through our neighborhoods. This is just another way our police department is keeping our Town safe.”

 

There are about 25 roadways listed as the most notorious for speeders, including Kings Highway in Valley Cottage, Townline Road in Nanuet, Laurel Road in New City, North Broadway in Central Nyack, and New Clarkstown Road in the Clarkstown portion of Spring Valley.  The roads are slated first for increased Traffic Enforcement.  The full list of roads is attached.  Each month the Clarkstown Police Department will select another five of the roads listed herein. 

 

“This initiative will help residents and those who travel through Clarkstown become more aware of the speed limits throughout our neighborhoods,” said Councilwoman Shirley Lasker.  “Our goal is to keep our seniors, families and children safe by encouraging safe and cautious driving.”    

 

The Clarkstown Police Department received a $15,000 Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) grant from the Governor’s Traffic Safety Commission that will be utilized to fund Operation Slow Down.  While traffic enforcement will be increased in these individual areas, routine traffic enforcement will continue throughout the Town.

 

“Operation Slow Down gives us the opportunity to pay specific attention to the identified streets with speeding problems in Clarkstown,” said Captain Michael Sullivan.  “We hope residents and visitors will heed our warning and slowdown.”

 

Both Gromack and Sullivan are confident of the program’s success because it focuses on public safety, education of residents about speeding, and enforcement.
