New Wrong-way Signs for Thruway Exits

The State Thruway Authority has added new signs to the South Nyack Exit 10 ramp at the Thruway to inform drivers that they are going the wrong way. According to a Thruway spokesman Shane Mahar, the signs use Doppler radar to register when a car is approaching the wrong way on the exit ramp and flashes an LED message to the driver and can be seen in both darkness and daylight. The Thruway Authority made the move to better alert drivers following the July accident in which 69- year old Michael Schechel of Haverstraw drove South in the Northbound lanes that killed 56- year old Hannah Ayeh- Brachie of Hillcrest and injured her husband, Newman Ayeh- Brachie. The accident is still under investigation by State Police and according to the Rockland District Attorney’s office it could take six to nine months to complete an accident reconstruction report.
