Hampton Bays' main street needs more crosswalks, there are no cross walks between the UPS store and the movie theater, that is a 1/3 of a mile without a crosswalk on a main street!

People are often driving way too fast down main street and new speed limits should be implemented and enforced for this stretch. A new crosswalk should go directly in front of the hardware store so patrons and other pedestrians can finally stop playing frogger and risking their lives.
