Bus Driver Appreciation

The Law Office of Michael Block appreciates all of the bus drivers out there. Thanks to a recent article in Newsday, people will understand the importance of why bus drivers drive the way they do. The article shows how some Long Island motorists become annoyed at the fact that bus drivers fully stop at stop signs and drive the speed limit. However, bus drivers are not allowed to drive above the speed limit, as they are operating the vehicle with the safety of the children in mind! We wanted to thank all bus drivers for all of the hard work they do.

Public Safety Fee Proposal Denied

This Tuesday, the Nassau legislature approved the county’s $2.9 billion budget for 2017. However, the county legislature did not announce a decision on the $105 surcharge on traffic and parking tickets. The proposed increase would go towards funding new police hires.

The ticket surcharge more than doubles the current cost of many traffic violations would generate over $60 million. That influx of money would have gone towards hiring 150 new police officers and 81 civilian law enforcement employees.

County Executive Ed Mangano introduced this Public Safety Fee into the 2017 Nassau County Budget, however the proposal has yet to be passed. The proposal has a chance to get passed in December, but if not, it will have to wait until next year’s budget. Do you feel that it should be passed?
