posted by Billie Owens in move-over law, road safety, emergency vehicles.

Press release from the Genesee County Sheriff's Office:

The Governor has signed into law amendments to the Vehicle and Traffic Law extending the current "Move-Over" law which require drivers approaching stopped police, emergency or hazard vehicles with their lights flashing to slow down and, if on a divided highway, to move over at least one lane away from that vehicle if traffic conditions allow. Below is a summary of these amendments, which become effective Jan. 17 (180 days after new law was signed).

It is important to understand that the purpose of this law is to increase the safety of those people who are working on the shoulder and along the edge of the road. Slowing down and putting distance between your passing vehicle and people in close proximity to any road increases the time you have to react.

However, moving over should never endanger others on the highway. Sudden movement or braking in an attempt to "move over" when it is not safe to do so must be avoided. When you see emergency or hazard lights ahead, immediately assess the traffic around you and plan a safe and gradual movement while using proper signals.

Our roads and highways are a wonderful convenience but they are also one of the most dangerous places to be. Please put away all distraction and concentrate on the very serious task of driving.

Chief Deputy Gordon Dibble

 

From the Law Offices of Mark C. Butler, PLLC, Williamsville

Client Advisory Regarding New "Move Over" Law for Parked, Stopped or Standing Vehicles Displaying a Blue or Green Light:

Dear Client:

Yesterday (July 21) the Governor signed into law amendments to the Vehicle and Traffic Law ("VTL") extending the current "Move-Over" law, which requires drivers approaching stopped police, mergency or hazard vehicles with their lights flashing to slow down and, if on a divided highway, to move over at least one lane away from that vehicle if traffic conditions allow.

The new provisions extend that law to vehicles operated by volunteer firefighters and volunteer ambulance workers involved in roadside emergency operations, which are displaying revolving blue or green lights as authorized by law.

The law amends three sections of the VTL, principally section 1144-a by creating a new subsection (c) that requires in relevant part "Every operator of a motor vehicle shall exercise due care to avoid colliding with a vehicle displaying a blue light ... or a green light ... which is parked, stopped or standing on the shoulder or any portion of such highway. For operators of motor vehicles on parkways or controlled access highways, such due care shall include, but not be limited to, moving from a lane which contains or is immediately adjacent to the should where such vehicle displaying a blue light or a green light ... [that] is parked, stopped or standing to another lane..."

(The new law is included in Chapter 97 of the Laws of 2016.)

The letter continues...

Our counsel is that this new law should be read narrowly: that it applies ONLY to fire and EMS vehicles with an authorized blue or green light as the case may be which are PARKED, STOPPED or STANDING. This law does NOT apply to such vehicles while moving!

As with the original "Move-Over" law, a violation can result in a fine between $150 and $400 and/or up to 45 days imprisonment as well as DMV administrative penalities.

By Tim Bojarski, for Batavia Downs:

The 2016 live harness racing season at Batavia Downs starts tonight (July 25) and will do so in style as some of the biggest names in harness racing will be on hand to take part in three divisions of the New York Sire Stakes for 2-year-old trotting fillies, vying for $111,801.

John Campbell and Ron Burke are the all-time leading money earning driver and trainer (respectively) in the history of the sport and they will be racing some of the finest freshman fillies New York State has to offer this year.

Campbell has competed at Batavia Downs a couple times over the past decade and while his appearances are infrequent, they are highly anticipated by the fans.

Campbell has lifetime earnings of $297,000,000 and a particular fondness for young trotters. This past Friday night (July 22) at the Meadowlands in their Kindergarten series for 2-year-old trotters, Campbell had mounts in two of the divisions and pulled off major upsets in both.

“I particularly follow the 2-year-old trotting fillies and colts and in New York, it was Batavia’s turn. It was good the way the schedule worked out and I was able to get up here to drive,” Campbell said. “I like to stay on the same schedule they’re on because I have some decent rides with the colts. I may be back again for the trotting colt divisions if there are no other conflicts at the time.”

Whereas many times young horses train and race over mile tracks early in their careers, competing over a half can be challenging for these inexperienced starters. But Campbell treats it like a learning curve rather than an impediment.

“Well certainly Batavia is a half mile track and it’s an adjustment for these trotting fillies. But Batavia is a little easier track to get around than Buffalo and these trotting fillies have already been to Buffalo and been to Monticello, so it gave them some experience and it makes it a little easier when it’s the third track in the order,” Campbell concluded.

Campbell will be driving a total of six on the card, three of which were tabbed as morning line favorites.

Ron Burke is the all-time training leader including 7,133 wins and over $157,000,000 in purse money. He will send forth three members of “The Burke Brigade” on Monday, all to be driven by Matt Kakaley.

The first division has Mighty Surf (Prayer I Am-Big Surfer) installed as the prohibitive 2-1 morning line favorite after her overpowering win at Monticello Raceway last week. After sitting chilly in the two-hole to the half, driver Bruce Aldrich Jr. pulled and left the field in his dust as the filly trotted to a 10-length victory timed in 2:01.1, which was a lifetime best.

Mighty Surf is a perfect two-for-two coming in for trainer Dennis Laterza and local driving favorite Kevin Cummings picks up the lines for this outing from post one. Cummings drove Mighty Surf to victory last month at Buffalo Raceway.

Royal Pinot (RC Royalty-Graduation Party) is the Burke Stable representative and finished second and third in two NYSS starts this year. Last week she made a break just past the quarter but Kakaley was able to regain quick composure and maintain position to take place money, only beaten a length and a half.

Kakaley is back up behind the 5-2 second choice and departs from post two.

Cherry Royal Ruby (RC Royalty-Nowerland Kristen) won her first start of the year at Buffalo by six lengths in a very respectable 2:02.1 clocking. Last week she finished third after taking an early lead before yielding to Scarey Karie and Maewegonow who battled to the wire.

Trainer/driver Dan Daley will guide Cherry Royal Ruby from post five at 7-2.

In the second division, Maewegonow (Deweycheatumnhowe-Mauresmo) fell just short last week, finishing second at Monticello. The filly pulled first-over past the half and cleared, but was immediately pressured for the rest of the mile by Scary Karie, who trotted the back half in :59.4 and won by a half-length.

Charlie Norris who trains, is again in charge of the lines as the 5-2 favorite from post 3.

Heels On Wheels (Conway Hall-Go Go Dancer) puts her two-race winning streak on the line from post seven. Last week off the pylons, the filly got away third and stayed there until Kakaley pulled first at the five-eighths pole and put on a measured drive that garnered a length victory in 2:01.  

The Burke trained Heels On Wheels will have Matt Kakaley in tow once again at 3-1 from post seven.

Flyhawk Charm (Deweycheatumnhowe-Final Time) won her first lifetime start in NYSS action last week but was aided by the entire field breaking by the quarter pole. The filly trotted on as the group trailed behind her, and registered a conservative 2:03 win.

Chris Lems is once again up from post two, listed at 4-1 for trainer Joe Flynn.

In the final split, Mamora Bay (Chapter Seven-Giulie Bi) is coming off her first lifetime win at Monticello last week and the 2:00.1 clocking just happened to be the fastest of all the heats. Moving from third towards three quarters, Mamora Bay out-trotted race leader Hotel Royale to the wire to win by a length.

Former Batavia regular Sam Schillaci both trains and drives the 5-2 morning line choice and leaves from post two.

Scarey Karie (Conway Hall-Alabama Hotel) has won two straight NYSS events, the last in 2:01 flat at Monticello. The filly has shown the ability to leave as well as come from behind, and she also possesses excellent closing speed.

Phil Fluet both trains and drives and will begin from post eight at 7-2.

There are also three divisions of the Excelsior Series that go for $15,000 each and two divisions of Excelsior B events that offer $6,600 respectively.

Post time for the first race is 6:15 p.m.

Press release from the Monroe County Water Authority:

Boil Water Notice for Western Genesee County -- Boil Your Water Before Using

The Boil Water Notice only applies to the towns of Pembroke, Darien and the Village of Corfu.

Monroe County Water Authority (MCWA) purchases its supply of water for Western Genesee County from Erie County Water Authority. A loss of pressure in northern parts of the Erie County system may affect the supply to our customers in Western Genesee County.

While the loss of pressure was never experienced in the MCWA system, we are exercising an abundance of caution and request you do not drink the water without boiling it first until we post on our website (www.mcwa.com) that we are confident there is no risk.

What should I do?

  • DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice on the MCWA website (www.mcwa.com)

What happened? What is being done?

  • The main break in Erie County has been isolated and pressure has been restored to normal. We are currently testing water quality throughout the area. This will take several days and test results will be reviewed by the Department of Health. It is likely that you will need to boil water for two or three days until we can confirm the water quality. You will be informed on our website when you no longer need to boil water.
  • We anticipate confirmation from our laboratory that there is not a problem within 48 hours.

For more information, please contact MCWA Customer Service at (585) 442-7200.

posted by Billie Owens in sports, harness racing, Batavia Downs, news.

By Tim Bojarski, for Batavia Downs:

A new era gets underway at America’s oldest lighted harness track on Monday (July 25) when Batavia Downs raises the curtain on its 70th season of live harness racing action.

Opening night features the $100,000 New York Sires Stakes division for 2-year-old trotting fillies along with free racing programs and magnetic racing schedules for the fans on track. Post time is set for 6:15 p.m.

The 2016 season (that runs through Dec. 10) features 70 race dates and includes seven matinees and three twilight programs.

Live racing will be presented on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights to begin the season with a new post time of 6:15. Sunday afternoon will replace Monday night beginning on July 31.

Holiday matinees include Labor Day (Sept. 5) and Columbus Day (Oct. 10). All matinee post times are 1:15. A special Breeders Cup program on Saturday (Nov. 5) begins at 3:30 p.m.   

The renaissance begins with the new "Hotel at Batavia Downs," which is located trackside between the grandstand and the paddock. Racing fans can check into this fantastic 82-room facility and access the track and the gaming floor for the duration of their stay without ever having to leave the premises.

Half of the rooms in the hotel overlook the home stretch of the track and members of bataviabets.com can watch and wager from their room. There are even four balcony suites facing the track. 

The hotel is slated to open in September. 

Fans will see the best racing possible after the Downs invested $125,000 in racetrack improvements under the guidance of new track Superintendent, Peter Arrigenna.

Arrigenna designed and directed the re-banking of the turns, leveling of the straightaways and then topping it off with 5,000 tons of new surface material to provide the fastest and safest racing strip possible. Once the track sets up, the competition should produce record speeds all year.

"These are very exciting times for Batavia Downs" said Todd Haight, director/GM of Live Racing. "There has been a lot of money invested in the racing side of this facility this year between the new hotel and track improvements and the entire management and staff cannot wait for our customers to come out and enjoy them." 

More than $1,000,000 in purse money will be up for grabs in stake races during the meet and that will draw some of the top horses and drivers in North America to the Genesee County oval.

Eight divisions of the New York Sire Stakes (NYSS) each going for an estimated $100,000 will highlight the best youthful performers in the Empire State this year and that should provide competition for the fans that is both exciting to watch and profitable to wager on.

NYSS divisions by age, sex and gait will be at Batavia on Monday (July 25, opening night), Aug. 7, 13, 20 and 31, and Sept. 3, 10 and 14. And eight New York County Fair finals, each vying for $10,000 will be contested on Wednesday (Sept. 7).

Batavia Downs signature stake, the $50,000 Robert J. Kane Memorial Pace, will be held on Saturday (Oct. 8) and will draw some of the top older Open pacers from the Northeast. This race has become a highly anticipated event by the fans as it presents an opportunity to break the all-age track record each year.

During the 70 cards of racing there will be 25 major promotions scattered throughout the year. Highlights of these special events include Sunday Dollar Days in August, the very popular wiener dog races and Family Fun Day, the first ever Racing Under Saddle (RUS) non-wagering exhibition at Batavia Downs (pending NYS Gaming approval), the Labor Day driver's bike race, a Columbus Day Chicken BBQ and another "Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend" promotion, when the racetrack will be giving away a pair of diamond earrings valued at $4,000.

There are buffet specials in the clubhouse every racing night all year, and the chef will once again be serving up his famous prime rib, crab leg, and shrimp buffet every Saturday night for the entire meet. All clubhouse buffet specials include gaming free play offers.

"We have put together the most aggressive entertainment package possible and believe we offer something for every member of the family all year," Haight said. "Between the caliber of horses that will compete over the new surface and the new amenities our customers will enjoy, we are looking for our 70th year of racing to be the most memorable one yet."
