Deadly Roslyn Heights Intersection Gets Added Safety Features

A busy and deadly Roslyn Heights, Long Island intersection has received added safety measures by officials from Nassau County and North Hempstead Town following a fatal crash that occurred nearby.
Last month, two Roslyn teens were killed while traveling north on Roslyn Road. They crashed into a backyard past where the road crosses Locust Lane. The day before the crash, officials had discussed safety issues in the area. The family that lives on the property where the crash occurred had complained that drivers heading north on Roslyn Road become confused when they approach the area where the county road veers east onto town-run Locust Lane.
This wasn’t the first incident where cars had landed on the front and side of the family’s property. In one instance, another vehicle totaled the family’s car.
Nine hours after the meeting had ended, the teens crashes into the background. Officials then said they would step up the safety measures at that intersection.
The county added pavement marking and speed signs, increased speed detections, and a guardrail to partially cover the part of the house on Locust Lane.
Other initiatives such as removing the veer-off lane and adding a full traffic light where Roslyn Road meets Locust Lane have been discussed.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
