I'm always happy to see signs like this as a reminder to people to slow down as they enter a neighborhood. I often wonder why the speed limit is 30 mph in a residential area as opposed to say 15 or 20. if you think about it, a car moving at 30mph can do a lot of damage. speaking of damage, yesterday a plane crashed in east farmingdale about a mile away from where I live. sadly one person was killed. it could have been a lot worse since many planes flying in and out of republic airport fly directly over our community.
my thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the deceased as well as the other three passengers of the plane, who are all hospitalized with serious injuries.
life is fleeting and uncertain, please take time to slow down and just be.
