They will call for a resolution asking the New York State Department of Transportation for a reduction of the speed limit on that part of 9W and to have more signs reminding motorists to share the road posted.

Many of the comments on Patch articles such as this one reporting about the accident focused on safety issues for bicycle riders in Route 9W.
