why should Greenburgh children be less safe than NYC children--NYS allowing ticketing of cars in NYC
Release Date: August 27, 2018

NYS SHOULD AUTHORIZE SPEED CAMERA TICKETING IN WESTCHESTER –NOT JUST NYC

WHY SHOULD A CHILD WHO LIVES IN WESTCHESTER BE LESS SAFE THAN A CHILD IN NYC---SPEED CAMERA TICKETING SAVES LIVES

  This past week the Governor and Mayor of NYC reached a deal authorizing tickets of speeding drivers by 140 cameras in school zones around NYC. The Department of Transportation estimates that more than 132,000 drivers have been caught on camera speeding in those zones in just over two weeks in NYC.

   The Governor issued an executive order giving the city access to data from the state Department of Motor Vehicles in order to identify drivers of speeding.  Speed camera’s save lives. And the  executive order signed by the Governor will help protect children in NYC.

   My concern: shouldn’t children in Westchester get the same protection as children in NYC?  Why should speed camera’s only be allowed in cities but not in towns and villages? NYS should have one law for everyone. A c hild’s life in NYC is no more important than a child’s life in Westchester.

   I will be reaching out to the Governor and members of the State Legislature and will ask that they push for legislation authorizing speed camera’s near school zones in every locality in Westchester and in NYS.  We have lots of speeding near schools all over Greenburgh, the villages within the town and all over the county. The police do the best they can but have limited resources. Speed camera’s would help us make our schools much safer for children.
