The 45 mile speed limit signs have been posted for several years on the southern end.

It's a welcomed change. I propose the Town/County embed rumble strips to cure motorcycle racing and reckless speeding.

Ive been complaining for 5 years now to the DPW, SCPD, SCPD COPE, do nuthin Mehan, Brookhaven town which says they have no jurisdicion on a county road and one of the biggest wastes of all Kate Browing who held her hands to her side out and gave me the responce of, " I made a phone call what else do you expect me to do". Her exact words. I have had drah racing at the traffic light in front of my home down to the beach which has gone thrown to the side. Steve Levy set aside extra funds for overtime for COPE to deal with this problem, Mehan spent it elsewheres. That sounds like a misapproiation of funds. The drag racing still goes on, ive video taped it, been on 911 calls with them saying what the hell is that , had drivers lose control and almost come on my property while I had my 5 year old out there on a lawn tractor with me. This is out of control now with all the deaths at the traffic light at my house and accidents due to SCPD's incompetance . I reported a huge pot hole that I see drivers hit and veer towards the sidewalk to do nuthin Kate and guess what? nothing done, she REFUSED to do nothing as usual because her girl, Lets make a DEALia and myself have issues. So Kattie puts the safety of the public in danger in favor or her personal relationship with a civic president that can only work with one or two groups down here but not the 26 others. The first person that gets hurt there , I will notify them that Kattie knew about it and did nothing and let them sue her. As far as the speed limit goes, I know COPE was writing more tickets then usual, but its not enough. I was promised 4 times by Tom Henry of COPE that they would set up a trap by my house and confiscate any vehicles racing. To this day it has yet to be done and these were made over a 2 year period. Next time he comes to my home ,Tom Henry , I shall have a jar a vaseline handy because I know I'll be lied to again. Call SCPD Inspector Mehan and complain, He's afraid to take my phone calls anymore as he has his sec. say he's not there but he is and call Steve Levys office ask for Jasmine and complain to her. She has been the only one actually trying to do something....

While I can understand 45 mph on the south end of sunrise where all the degenerates live anyways, and maybe even south of the expressway, anywhere north of that is really, really rediculous. Its nothing but woods on both sides and is pretty lightly traveled. The only thing lowering the limit did was make it more of a pain in the ass to get to Shoreham/Wading River.

What's really "rediculous" is your spelling, and ignorance for people who live here on the South Shore. Please don't tell us you live in Shirley...

I've lived here for 6 years and have always know it to be 45 South of Sunrise Hwy. This isn't anything new

I don't understand why we have to treat our William Floyd Parkway like the LIE. It is a road that is used by everyone. I see people riding bikes, wallking,pushing baby strollers and skateboarder along this road why must people go over the speed limit and put everyone in danger. I don't know about the rest of you but the gas prices are high enough and speeding causes more money to be spent on gas. so lets slow down and save a few lives in our neighborhood. life is too short. Have respect for the drivers that want to obey the law by going the proper speed and not climb up their tail while they are driving.

What makes me laugh are the losers who speed up to 60 mph on WFP back in forth each lane, only to get stuck at a red light waiting to turn left.Then I still pass them in the right lane doing 45.
