I drive through Huntington and Cold Spring Harbor every Tuesday and Wednesday and it amazes me to see how fast people drive through a village with such heavy pedestrian traffic. This is so tragic. SLOW Down people! Stop texting and realize you are driving what is the equivalent of a weapon on wheels. Nothing is more important than driving your car!
