— Carr praised the efforts of Little, Cuomo and Owens.

“They’re the people who made this happen,” Carr said. “I want to thank them.”

Cuomo thanked Carr.

“Thank you for your recent correspondence and for bringing your concerns to my attention,” the governor wrote to Carr. “To build a stronger, competent government in New York, we need the participation of citizens like you to spotlight problems and areas in need of improvement. Your input is invaluable to our mission to create a government that works for its people, and I appreciate you taking the time to write to me.”

While Carr has been successful in reducing the Crown Point speed limit, DOT officials warn speeding traffic may still be a problem.

“National studies and our own experience have proven that simply reducing the speed limit will not reduce the operating speeds of most motorists traveling through a particular corridor,” McDonald said. “We also recommend that the town of Crown Point work closely with the state police and Essex County sheriff to implement an enforcement strategy targeting those motorists who may be in violation of the speed limits within the hamlet.”
