SPEED HUMP OR ELEVATED CROSS WALK SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AT BRONX RIVER PARKWAY AT THE WESTCHESTER COUNTY CENTER
COULD POSSIBLY REDUCE FUTURE ACCIDENTS OR FATALITIES
YESTERDAYS FATAL ACCIDENT HIGHLIGHTS NEED FOR REVIEW
 
Dear County Executive Astorino:
  Yesterdays horrific accident at the Bronx River Parkway/Westchester County Center that killed Korean War veteran Stanley Brenner as he was crossing the Bronx River Parkway highlights the need to consider placing either an elevated crosswalk or speed hump at the Bronx River Parkway at the Westchester County Center. This suggestion could reduce speeding --encourage drivers to be more aware of pedestrians crossing and increase safety.
  Thousands of Westchester residents cross the parkway to attend shows at the County Center every week. Children, adults, seniors, the disabled are frequently in a rush to attend shows. Some are careful. Others are not. It's important to encourage motorists to slow down.
  I hope that your office will consider this suggestion and have the appropriate public safety experts investigate the recommendation. The town of Greenburgh currently has an elevated crosswalk on E Hartsdale Ave--near the Hartsdale train station.
