Recently when we had torrential downpours a motorist was trapped in a flooded car on Merritts Road, a little bit south of Hempstead Turnpike. This problem recurs frequently at that same spot because of the big dip in the road.
Why not do something? The village should put up warning signs at that point saying, “Major flooding ahead in heavy rain. Your car may be trapped.”
Better still as a local resident suggested to me, the village could install a mechanism that would measure the water in that dip and flash a warning sign when it rises above two inches.
