POST TOUGHMAN 2014, BOB RIEKERT LETTER TO THE EDITOR, WHAT'S IT GOING TO TAKE...SEE BELOW
To the Editor:
It occurred to me that the Toughman racers should be forced to use the
one lane on the north side of Croton Point Ave. They should access Rte.
9 only on the southbound down ramp. And they should cross Riverside
onto the north side lane at the light. It seems to me that would make
it much easier controlling traffic and racers crossing Riverside at that
This would allow traffic to have unimpeded access to the other three
ramps to Rte. 9, and the Croton RR station, as well as to and from the
Shop Rite shopping center. It would also allow the one lane south on
Rte. 9 to be left open if the Committee ever got their act together made
Even after the south bound lanes of Rte. 9 are opened to traffic,
motorists are blocked in every direction as race stragglers cross the
five traffic lanes on the south side of Riverside. This goes on until
It was also reported that police were oblivious to irate motorists at an
earlier hour when an officer spoke to one driver in front of the
Farmers Market while the light on Riverside changed from green to red
three times over...
Isn't there any one out there who knows what they're doing?
What would it take to convince the Village and Race Committee decision
makers that "We're mad as hell, and we're not going to take it any
