Clarkstown "Operation Slow Down" Targets New Streets

Police responding to residents’ complaints about speeders


Here's the list of the new “Operation Slow Down” streets. Traffic control effort will target the following streets:

  • Tamarac Ave
  • Congers Road
  • Convent Road
  • Sicketown Road
  • Parrott Road

Chief Sullivan said the department received a lot of complaints from residents about speeders on these side streets.  He explained patrol officers will travel the side streets and traffic officers with radar will cover the highways and major roadways in town. 

About Operation Slow Down

Operation Slow Down, a public awareness and enforcement initiative against speeding and reckless drivers, was launched in February 2011. The purpose of the public safety program is to educate residents and raise awareness about the dangers of speeding and provide increased enforcement.  Through the year, different streets in Clarkstown have been selected for targeted enforcement, resulting in many drivers being ticketed.

I just can't seem to keep it at 30 on N. Little Tor Road going towards Central Highway. That is one place I wish I had cruise control.

What happens if one of our elected officials got pulled over for speeding ? Would they get a ticket just like the rest of us....

Try going the speed limit on Rt 304....That road should be on the list.

Rob, I agree 304 is a problem especially with out of staters with small kids everywhere trying to pick apples at Doc Davies. The town should lower the speed from 55 down to 30 like Bardonia. I see a close call everytime I pass.

On one hand I'm thankful to have a list of specific roads to avoid if my foot is feeling heavy, but on the other hand (or foot??) I think it may defeat the purpose for cops catching speeders if they know where NOT to go. I've also found that curious deer have been a help to me in remembering to slow it down...Thankfully I've never hit one but I can list about 50 places in Rockland where I had some very close calls, and you betcha I slow it down each time I pass those same areas! LOL!
