  1. That stretch of Cedarbridge is one of the most dangerous roads in the township.

    The road was designed for cars traveling 50 mph in both directions. However, because of the recent development in the area, we now have shopping plazas on both sides of the road. Cars come driving 50 mph when suddenly another car is stopped in front of them trying to make a left turn into a shopping plaza. He then swerves to the right lane…… right into another car.

    It is a miracle that these accidents aren’t happening every hour.

    My solution: A barrier down the middle of Cedarbridge, just like Rt 70.

    And stop the building until these traffic and safety issues are thought out properly.

  2. I hope everyone is okay. driving in Lakewood is like anything else that needs to be addressed in this town. We all need to stop driving while talking on the phone and texting while the person on the other line is talking with 3 kids in the back screaming and crying. It falls into the category of awareness if we are all aware of our surroundings and think before we do something in turn our decisions will be better for you more sensitive to others and people will live happier together awareness is key to living with others. THIS IS NOT DIRECTED AT ANYONE JUST A THOUGHT. I wish everyone a good and blessed year may we all be more aware.

  3. This town had a terrible driving record Prior to the common usage of talking on a cellular phone while driving.

    It’s the attitude that must be corrected.

    Too many aggressive drivers out there.

    Too many drivers take everything on the road Personally.

    If a driver is “upsetting” you, it is time to pull over, and cool off. If you decide to tailgate, you are ALSO potentially hurting yourself. A. a ticket for tailgating is 5 points. B. If the driver stops suddenly, YOU will be involved in the mva. As an added bonus, you will be getting points on your license, a traffic summons, and possible small claims court summons, a wrecked vehicle, possible bodily injuries, and higher payments to your insurance company.

  4. dont know why you say this town needs to wake up and drive safely
    every town has this problem !!!!
    i drive all over and see this problem everywere !

  5. Anyone know the status of the injured? People make many misjudgements while driving, but is everyone ok? I consider myself a competent and careful driver (no points or tickets, stops to let people in, can parallel park in town) and even I’ve been in a few accidents. Maybe the driver was trying to avoid hitting someone/something else when his vehicle flipped. Its also known that certain types of vans to flip over easier than others…the van with the lowest safety ratings are quite common here in Lakewood.

  6. There are too many vehicles on the road, Lakewood is not equipped to handle such a large amount of traffic. Yes we all have to drive more sensibly, but in this case there is no room to maneuver in any direction. It is a great thing that more people want to live here and more houses are being built, but maybe we fix the road problems with it. It truely is a miracle that more accidents don’t happen more frequently. My daughter asked me what should the township do, “tear apart Lakewood to build roads?” I answered, “if that’s what it takes, yes, but maybe they can start one road at a time”.
