I find it quite disturbing the state's new budget calls for a surcharge on speeding tickets and that the extra money would go back to the state and not used for more speed cameras.
I live in Glen Oaks Village on Commonwealth Boulevard. The speed limit is 30 mph and there is a school at the end of the block, yet some drivers are driving over the speed limit and endangering those of us that live on the block.
I work in Mineola on Jericho Turnpike and travel through New Hyde Park, which has a speed limit of 30 mph. Even though I travel the speed limit, there are cars flying past me at 40 to 50 mph.
In my opinion, we need more speed cameras, which I hope will cause drivers to slow down. Speed kills, and that is a fact that cannot be denied.
