Letter: Desperately Seeking Stop Sign

I wrote a letter to the Town of North Hempstead back in July 2009. I have been getting the run around from all the councilmen and town supervisor and traffic technician office. We need a stop sign on Tennyson Avenue on the corner of Bryant Street in Westbury for the safety of our children and elderly residents.

The cars that come off Old Country Road and out of the Associated food store parking lot go so fast down Tennyson Avenue and the cars that stop at Whittier Street come so fast to Old Country Road. They do not stop for the school bus when the lights are flashing.

I am a taxpayer and a grandmother on the Westbury School PTA. The parents who bring their children to the corner of Tennyson Avenue and Bryant Street all year long from the school bus stop need your help. We need a stop sign or is the Town of North Hempstead waiting for a child or elderly resident to get hit by a speeding car or truck?

I have asked [Councilman Robert] Troiano for the past few years to help me.

Now we are waiting for the traffic technician. So far they have not returned my phone calls. I also gave our town supervisor’s office a copy of my petition that was signed by all the neighbors on Bryant Street in Westbury.

School has started again and we still do not have a stop sign. Help us get a stop sign on Tennyson Avenue and Bryant Street for the safety of our children and elderly. Call the Town of North Hempstead.
