Greenfield: Better Signage Needed to Prevent Speeding Tickets

BROOKLYN -

Drivers heading south on the Prospect Expressway travel at a comfortable 45 miles per hour, but at Church Avenue, where Ocean Parkway begins, the speed limit suddenly drops to 30 mph. The result, too often, is a speeding ticket.

Councilman David Greenfield wants the Department of Transportation to install clear signage that will show the upcoming reduced speed, and thereby prevent drivers from being ticketed because they were unaware of the sudden change.

“This is one of the busiest and most frustrating stretches of road for drivers and pedestrians, so we need to continue investigating ways to make it safer and less congested,” Greenfield said.
