There are several Alps Road residents who have pleaded with the Wayne Police Traffic dept to put up a digital speed monitor. Drivers come off of Rt. 23 and speed up Alps Road at what must be 50mph. It is a residential road; children, pets, etc. Perhaps now they will respond to our request!

Unfortunatly,alps road is a county road. Alps road has a sign warning drivers of the curve,plus a recommended safe speed to travel around the bend. There is also a reflective arrow on the curve warning drivers of the sharp curve in the road. I have seen way to many accidents on that curve and the one by Doremus (1Fatal). Dorothy, I hope your sons surgery went well and Wish Him a speedy recovery.

Thank you. I appreciate the kind words from everyone. I honestly wish people would think twice before leaving some of these comments. Please have some respect for the families that will never recover from their nightmares!

Dorothy, I do not see any insensitive comments. If anything, the statements enlighten the public as to the rules regarding underage drivers. Let's not forget, that this vehicle could have also destroyed the lives of innocent people that just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, had there been other vehicles involved. Now, that would be an unfortunate nightmare. Would you have objected to these same comments had alcohol or drugs been involved? The law was broken.

When driving,you have to be 110% focused on the road.Thank God nobody was seriously hurt.Lessons are learned by these accidents.Five boys driving around having a good time not getting into trouble and this happens.That's why they call them accidents.
