We urged Nassau County to put the brakes on its school speed zone camera program, due to questionable administration and poor signs that lack warning lights. Viewers shared their thoughts:
“I’m so mad at these cameras. I think it’s a scam. I got three tickets in one day.”
“It’s just a money-maker, it’s harassing. I’m a retiree and I don’t have the money to waste.”
“I received two tickets not realizing that the school was there. If you’re not local, you’re not even certain where these schools are.”
Hilda Pezzotti, Hicksville:
“The speed cameras are intentionally set up without warning lights or signs, as it’s simply a revenue producing item.”
“We don’t need signs, we don’t need lights, we need people to act like adults and follow the law.”
“Do we need to sky-write it for these people? No. Everyone needs to slow down for the safety of our children and obey the law.”
From speed cams to sewers, former Suffolk Executive Steve Levy disagreed with our support of Ballot Proposal No. 5 aimed at settling legal disputes over borrowing against sewer funds. He writes:
“This referendum would take money slated for sewer and septic construction and allow it to be used to plug budget holes, only to be paid back by future tax increases.”
We thank viewers for taking their turn and invite you to do the same.
