New Windsor Police install new pole mounted speed limit sign Town Police & Highway Department members were on Dean Hill Road recently to talk to some area residents about the installation of a new pole mounted electronic speed limit sign. Town residents Sabrina Oliveri and Kevin Shader had written a letter to the Town about their concerns of speeding cars on Dean Hill Road and requested a sign of this type be installed to help slow vehicles down. Electronic speed limit signs of this type are portable and are used to alert motorists of their speed if they are traveling above the posted limit. The Police Department determined that Dean Hill Road would be a suitable location for the sign to be displayed. The Highway Department installed the sign post and the sign last week. New Windsor Police Chief Robert Doss stated, “I think this is an excellent example of how we all can work together to get things done. Traffic safety in the town is extremely important to us and getting cars to slow down in residential areas like Dean Hill Road is a priority. Motorists have to realize that there are people walking their dogs, people exercising and kids playing in these areas and they need to be aware of their speed and slow down for everyone’s safety.” If you know of a road that you think would benefit from the installation of one of the signs, please contact Sgt. William Ruger. He can be contacted at (845) 565-7000 or at [email protected] The Police Department recently obtained two of these electronic speed signs using grant funding from The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. This grant is federally funded and is used for criminal justice programs at the state and local levels. The signs are portable and can be easily moved from location to location depending on need.
