News

School zone speed cameras are beginning to gear up in Plainview-Old Bethpage, and though the robot law enforcement tools are not yet fully operational, drivers are beginning to get road weary at the prospect of a surveillance state.

While officials at the Nassau County Traffic Safety board said that only five cameras have been activated, drivers are spotting far more on daily drives through the neighborhood. Michael Dulphin, a Plainview resident who makes a daily commute to a local college, said he has seen school zone speed cameras pop up near Parkway Elementary School as well as Our Lady of Mercy school on South Oyster Bay Road.

A symbol of freedom and expression for many, cars of all shapes and sizes have served as the gateway to adventure for both the young and young-at-heart alike for countless generations.

H. Roy Jaffe has collected and photographed cars for more than 70 years. It’s this lifetime of knowledge that he recently shared with a large audience in the form of an interactive visual presentation held at the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library entitled “The Rarest and Most Exotic Cars Ever Built.”
