3054 Lee Place Bellmore, NY
Lee Place runs for a while between Karen and the next stop sign at Ricky street. Many motorists not only don't come to a complete stop at either Stop sign, but exceed the posted 30 mph speed limit by 10-15 mph along that stretch of Lee Place. The street is unsafe for our children and even adults, not to mention the traffic noise that's created at higher speeds. A good solution would be speed humps. According to sources, humps will reduce 85 percentile speeds by 8-10 mph. A warning sign notifies motorists before humps. They are used on residential roads where lower speeds are desired and reasonable.
Keep in mind, almost the entire peninsula is dotted with Stop signs that keep speeds down, but because there is no intersecting street along this stretch, motorists take advantage and speed down to or up from the bottom of the peninsula in order to reach Merrick Road faster..
The pot holes will be addressed, how about Newsday going after the "Illegal Roadside Advertisers" IE: I buy homes, I fix computers, I buy cars, Translators needed, Singles, Etc. Etc. Etc. Start a campaign labeled "Don't support Illegal advertisers" and the problem will go away. JMHO Brian McHale 516 459-2417

Three weeks ago, with no explanation for their action, the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter dismissed their workers and volunteers that, among other duties, found homes for many of the very adoptable animals that pass through their shelter. The two people on the payroll were transferred to other Town departments; the volunteers were just told not to return.
I know firsthand how wonderful so many dogs that are given up for mostly pathetic reasons, can be. I took a 7 year old Chihuahua into my home from there and he is surely the most perfect creature ever.
This Tuesday, November 9th, the town of Hempstead is holding their monthly meeting during which people are allowed, at the end of this meeting, to speak up about any issue of serious concern. Many of us in the rescue community plan to use our allotted 2 minutes at the end of the meeting to plead for the return of these wonderful people whose efforts saved countless lives, every day.
Why in the world would this shelter wish not to save dogs when such rescues have been made so easy for them. What excuse can there possibly be for choosing to put these very adoptable animals down, instead of allowing them to go to certified rescue groups that will find them wonderful second chances at life.
We need you there for support and help in spreading the word about this situation. We need your amazing ability to change inconceivable wrongs to rights so that we can continue to save lives.

233 Fulton Ave Hempstead, NY 11550, USA
Currently there is a left turn arrown for the West Bound (W/B) traffic on Fulton Ave (Hempstead Tpke) at the intersection of N. Franklin Ave. however there is NO turn lane for vehicles making the left turn. If any W/B vehicle, other than the 1st vehicle stopped at the light, is making a left turn they are not able to do so until the next cycle due to the East bound traffic. This causes W/B traffic in the left lane to back up almost the full length of the block and impatient drivers to make sudden unsafe lane changes into the right lane. The condition can be easily fixed by adding a left turn lane for W/B traffic, there is sufficient room to accomplish this if 3-4 parking spaces are eliminated on either the East or West Bound side.
201 Hungry Harbor Rd Valley Stream, NY 11581, USA
A few months ago a new traffic light was installed at this intersection. There is a left turn arrow from Brookfield Road onto Hungry Harbor Rd. However, there is no right turn arrow onto Brookfield Rd. from Hungry Harbor Rd. This causes confusion when the left turn arrow is on and the cars on Hungry Harbor do not know when it is safe to make a right turn. This should be corrected.
