Re: New Law in Effect

Last year several illegals in an uninsured vehicle were involved in a minor traffic accident near the Westbury train station. Fleeing the accident, they went around the lowered crossing gates and were hit by 2 train passing in opposite directions. The car and occupants were incinerated, leaving the taxpayers holding the bag hor several millions of dollars to replace lost railcars, damaged track, and about 200 feet of station platform. Now, not to be argumentative but there were laws against:

Being in the country illegally
Driving without insurance
Fleeing the sceen of an accident
Driving around down crossing gates

The laws didn't save taxpayers anything.
