Okay no one got really hurt and speed might not of been a factor, but who ever laid out the flashing 20 MPH sign going towards Pelham manor probably got hit by a parked car when he or she was young. The sign should be at least before Franklin ave. as it is now, you can do 30mph almost to the driveway of Trinity, that makes the corner of North ave and Pelham rd a 30 mph zone and that just crazy. There's 4 crossing guards on Pelham rd for Trinity and only one is in the 20 mph zone.

It's not New Ro, it's New Rochelle. You don't call Bronxville, Bro or Mamaroneck, Mam. Please have some respect for our residents and our history!!!

We use "New Ro" sparingly in headlines that need to be as short as possible. No disrespect is ever intended.
