New Digital Sign In Greenburgh Aims To Cut Down Speeding

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- For years, Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner has received many complaints from residents about speeding drivers throughout the town.

Finally, he believes the city has come with an answer -- n digital sign that announces the driver's speed.

Feiner said the police department does it's best, but that it's impossible to have a police car on every street, every day. To help solve the problem, the city has come up with an out-of-the-box idea that Feiner believes will slow down drivers.

"We recently purchased a digital sign board and will be moving the digital sign board around town, Feiner said, who is also a Daily Voice community adviser.

Police will use selective enforcement by moving the sign to a street for one or two days and then move it to another street. They will issue a number of tickets on each street, Feiner said

"The sign will say something like "15 tickets issued for speeding during past two days," he added. "We may also advise motorists when tickets on a given street are issued for different reasons: failure to put on seat belts, register cars, or crossing a lane."

Feiner hopes that drivers will begin to worry about getting a ticket and slow down.

Residents interested in having the sign on their street should contact the police department at 914-989-1700.
