Your “Patience Is A Virtue” editorial was a good one: a good “lesson," plus good advice. Unfortunately, it was probably “preaching to the choir”, because those of us patient, considerate reader-drivers will just continue practicing our responsible, careful driving habits; while the impatient, reckless fools like the one you describe—who arrogantly think that THEIR time is more important than anyone else’s safety—are likely to continue their public-menace bad driving habits.
If only horn-honkers like that Mercedes owner were the worst ones on the road. It’s more the speeders, swervers, texters, and drunkards who cause the most damage and death. I only wish that each and every one of them would hit a vehicle-damaging, disabling, incapacitating pothole before they cause an accident that will kill or maim some innocent person, whether a pedestrian, passenger, or “pilot” of a patiently-driven car.

Plainview resident Cila Schlanger was eager to attend a two-hour property tax workshop at the Farmingdale Public Library last week — the problem is, so were many other people.
“I was taken aback once I came here because there was such a line,” she said. “I thought it would be a two-hour workshop, but individuals had to wait to be helped on a first come, first serve basis.”
Residents are trying to save a buck whenever and wherever they can, especially when it comes to property taxes. To try and lend a helping hand, elected officials recently hosted a property tax exemption workshop at the library, drawing residents from across Nassau County.

Plainview school officials are looking for public input for the next round of capital improvements.
The Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District announced the search for volunteers to serve on its Facilities Upgrade and Improvement Advisory Committee at a special Board of Education meeting held on July 16. The committee will advise and assist the District in preparing a capital improvement bond issue that will be proposed to the Plainview-Old Bethpage community for a vote in December.
