BROCKPORT – Brockport resident Daniel Lines addressed speeding concerns on state Route 219 during the Horton Township Board of Supervisors meeting Wednesday night.
"We want to give you gentlemen a heads up to let you know that our committee [Concerned Citizens of Brockport for the Safety and Health of Our Citizens] is going to push forward on this," Lines said.
Lines distributed a letter to the board, secretary Dennis Thompson and the general public detailing a recent incident that occurred to a Brockport resident.
According to the letter, Heather Reckner of Brockport was attempting to make a left turn into her driveway when a vehicle passed her at an excessive rate of speed in the left lane.
Lines said Pa. State Police Trooper Armanini was called to the scene.
"I'm going to write an official letter to [Senator Joe] Scarnati, [State Rep. Matt] Gabler, PennDOT and the state police," Lines said. "We are having all of these problems and I just wanted to inform you gentlemen and we will keep the secretary Dennis Thompson informed every step of the way."

I grew up right along 219 before you got to Brockport Church at the bottom of the hill.I was just home July 11-26 and I sat out on my Moms porch every day .There needs to be a speed reduction big time.I myself saw some close calls in with cars racing to pass. The bad part about living there is for my 81 year old mom to check her mail .She will have to sometimes stand there for a long time to be able to make it across the road because of the speeding cars. I think all the mailboxes need to be put on the side of the road each house has and not have to cross. Please think about this in your meetings.The speed needs to be cut down to at least 45 in resident areas . I would hate a disaster to happen running into someones home .Great job Horton Twsp for reviewing all this. I am sure there will be a wise decision made .

Debbie,
I most certainly agree with you on the speeding on that road, 100 percent. It's a peaceful drive to begin with, not sure what the deal is with rushing through like a tornado.
As for your mother going to get her mail on a daily basis, that opens up a whole new can of worms: just how difficult would it be to have all the mailboxes on the side that the house is located on? Very good point there.
All the best,
Joseph Bell
