Request for Stop Signs Near P.S. 110
State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has asked New York City's Department of Transportation to install stop signs on Delancey and Lewis Streets, near P.S. 110 – The Florence Nightingale Elementary School. In a letter to DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan Silver said, in the absense of traffic signs along Delancey, "drivers frequently speed down these streets without any regard for the safety of school children, parents and other pedestrians." The issue was on the agenda at last week's Community Board 3 transportation sub-committee meeting, but no parents showed up to speak on behalf of the proposal. The committee will take up the issue again at next month's meeting.
