Traffic Intentionally Congested?

Traffic in New York City is intentionally horrible. Can you believe it? Well some of us actually can.

Why to Hire a Traffic Attorney: Insurance premium hikes $$$

Although you may have a clean driving record since you were in high school, a conviction for a moving violation may lead to an increased insurance premium. If you receive a summons for a Cell Phone or Speeding, hikes in premiums are likely to follow. Convictions will also lead to fines, and possible Driver Assessment fees.

Obviously, a conviction for driving drunk or impaired will also lead to increased insurance rates. One reason to hire an experienced traffic ticket attorney is to increase your chances of winning the ticket. If you are found not guilty, you will not get points or easy fines or pay more for insurance.

Villages in Long Island to get Speed Radar Signs

If you live in North Hempstead, Long Island be aware that there are 16 villages that will be installing speed radar cameras to enforce speed limits. There will be 29 signs installed and they’re being funded by New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.

Check out the full article below:

Speed radar signs will be installed in 16 villages and unincorporated parts of North Hempstead in an effort to slow down motorists.

The electronic signs display how fast an oncoming driver is going and what the legal speed limit is on that road. The signs are to be dispersed throughout the villages and parts of North Hempstead. The project is funded by a $100,000 state grant, officials said.

Twenty-two of the 29 signs are portable and officials said they would consider moving them around based on community concerns. Two of the signs are affixed to trailers. Five can be permanently secured to poles or other structures.

“Every once in a while, we’re having a really tough time and there’s not enough police enforcement,” Supervisor Judi Bosworth said Monday. “If you put up a speed radar sign, it raises people’s consciousness as to how fast they’re going.”

Villages where the signs will be used are East Hills, East Williston, Flower Hill, Great Neck, Great Neck Plaza, Lake Success, Manorhaven, Mineola, New Hyde Park, Port Washington North, Roslyn, Roslyn Estates, Roslyn Harbor, Saddle Rock, Westbury, and Williston Park.

State. Sen Jack Martins (R-Old Westbury), who secured the grant, said he had “heard from a number of communities” about speeding.

“We went to the town and told them about our concerns and asked if they would coordinate for the entire town,” Martins said Monday.

The funding comes from the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. Town officials said they expect to approve the funds at Tuesday’s town board meeting.

The grant requires the town to purchase the devices for the villages. Officials from the town’s highway and public safety departments are to identify potential sites for the speed signs in North Hempstead, with the coordination of Martins and village leaders.

Bosworth said spots where the trailers would be most effective include sections of Roslyn Road and nearby Roslyn High School.
