News from the Supervisor






June 6, 2011


The Town of Clarkstown continues its successful traffic education and enforcement initiative this month. Operation Slow Down will focus on six more streets this June, following enforcement on 5 streets in May garnering a total of 165 violations for speeding.


“Our Traffic Officers identified specific roads in the Town of Clarkstown, based on volume and speed, that require added attention to ensure our resident’s safety,” said Town Supervisor Alex 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.”


Clarkstown Police will increase traffic enforcement on the following six roads throughout the month of June: Strawtown Road in New City, McCarthy Way in West Nyack, Burda Avenue in New City, Congers Road in New City, Woodland Road in New City and Foxwood Road in West Nyack. 


Last month, traffic enforcement occurred on the following streets with the total number of violations at 201, for speeding, moving violations and others, as depicted below:


Germonds Road in West Nyack - 42

Phillips Hill Road in New City – 7

Old Mill Road in West Nyack/Valley Cottage - 48

Highview Avenue in Nanuet - 13

Little Tor Road in New City - 91


“So far Operation Slow Down is proving to be successful,” said Chief Michael Sullivan. “The program focuses on public safety, education about speeding and enforcement. We hope residents and visitors continue to become more aware of the dangers of speeding through our neighborhoods.”


In February, Supervisor Gromack, in conjunction with the Town Board and the Clarkstown Police Department announced the start of Operation Slow Down, a public awareness and enforcement initiative against speeding and reckless drivers throughout the Town.


There are about 25 roadways listed as the most notorious for speeders. Each month the Clarkstown Police Department selects various roads.


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