The speed limit on Higbie Lane and Udall Road in West Islip has been lowered to 30 mph and new signage has now been put in place, according to County Legis. Tom Barraga.
The change–from 35 mph to 30 mph–is in effect in both roads, which have become notorious for speeding and serious accidents–from Montauk Highway to Sunrise Highway, Barraga, R-West Islip, said.
Barraga said the new speed limit will be strictly enforced by Suffolk County police, with violators receiving fines between $75-$150.
“Adhere to the 30 mph speed limit and you will
not have a problem," Barraga said.
