Use portable radar stations to snag speeders: Letter
In Westchester County there are hundreds of drivers speeding every day, and they have no concern for others on the road. However, risking police officers’ lives trying to catch them is not the answer.
When toll booths can record cars going through without paying the toll, why can’t the state Department of Transportation institute portable radar stations on our highways?
The Sprain Brook Parkway had a police speed enforcement detail set up recently, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., where 32 speeding tickets were written during that time.
There are hundreds of people who speed on that parkway from about 6 a.m. to midnight every day of the week. Radar signs posted — none.
When a driver is on the Sprain Brook Parkway, he puts his life and the people in his car in danger.
Portable radar stations that can go from one location to another certainly is the answer; then speeders can get fined every day for breaking the law.
The revenue from these fines might help repair costs for some of our broken roads.
