Letter: Slow Down

I implore the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department to more stringently patrol Route 9D between Bear Mountain Bridge and Route 403, especially on the weekends. Many vehicles — primarily motorcyclists with no mufflers — travel the corridor in excess of 65 mph, pass on the double-yellow line and honk at those who travel at the posted speed. They are noisy, dangerous, rude and breaking the law. They need to be ticketed and stopped from disrupting the beauty and relative tranquility of our roads.
