Lucky it was only the mirror. Glad the crew are safe. However, the police from both Irvington and tarrytown need to enforce the speed restrictions on East Sunnyside. 20mph and no crossing the double yellow lines to avoid having to follow the contours of the winding lane - barely a road. About time both forces paid a little more attention, and the county put in crossings at the Deertrack/Pintail/Whitetail intersection, where the speed limit is 15mph.

By monitoring East Sunnyside Lane better, large revenue from speeding tickets and issuing summonses to prohibited travel of commercial vehicles who use this as a short cut could be obtained by the two villages. Cars are always speeding, trucks and large rigs drive through on their way to RT 119 or to Broadway (short cut) This road needs better monitoring. This is a residential area...I have personally had commerical vehicles tailgate as I travel the speed limit, seen pipes and siding fly off backs of trucks headed towards whoever is behind them and swerving cars with people obviously texting...More summonses and tickets will deter such behavior and illegal use of this road. Is there not a sign prohibiting commercial traffic unless making deliveries in this area...a joke..one noisy shortcut that is way out of control and very dangerous.
