White Plains has recently purchased a speed display sign which can be used as an educational tool to help reduce speeds in the neighborhoods. The sign can be rotated among streets where more frequent violations occur. It temporarily displays individual vehicle speeds (for three seconds) while permanently displaying the 30 mph citywide speed limit.
It should also be clear that children should never be encouraged to play in any street, even on low volume streets such as dead ends. They often become complacent about the real danger that exists and are at risk when walking near, or crossing, busier streets. And yes, we have had numerous child / vehicle accidents on dead-end streets in White Plains in recent years.
Fringe developed areas along Westchester Avenue (Platinum Mile), Central Avenue / Tarrytown Road, and southern Mamaroneck Avenue generate approximately an additional 100,000 - 150,000 vehicles per day.
The Department of Traffic regularly addressed all of these and many other issues to increase the safety for White Plains residents, whether they travel the streets of the city as motorists or pedestrians.
