  1. I feel bad for this kid. He should have a refuah Shelaima.
    Just yesterday i was driving on Route 9 (around 4th st). The light turned green for route 9, and cars started going, when a kid (around 14– a kid becuase he has no brains) sped with his bike across the road- The cars started going- and BH i saw and beeped by horn till the cars stopped.
    Drivers have to be careful– but bike riders need to as well.
    What happnened to the old days when someone walked their bike across the street. (i do see people doing it occasionaly, but not too often)

  2. To #1 (Falafel) – Maybe praying for his compete recovery (he’s only 13), and wishing his family the best would have been a kinder post…just saying. Anyway, wishing him well. A scary thing to happen to a child.

  3. Sadly many bike drivers are unaware that there are rules of traffic safety they need to follow. Couple this with auto drivers who are recklessly discourteous and in a great hurry to get to the next red light, and you have a disaster waiting to happen. My prayers go out for this young boy.

  4. My heart goes out to the young man who was injured and to his family and I send my best wishes to him for a speedy recovery.
    At the same time, it would be prudent for all bicyclists to become aware that according to law, they are NOT pedestrians. Consequently, they must follow the laws of traffic and they are not accorded the same right of way that pedestrians are. Parents should teach their children to follow the flow of traffic and ALL traffic signals, and signal when they are turning to alert cars and pedestrians. Another option is to walk one’s bicycle across a street: then and only then they are considered a pedestrian and are afforded the rights and protections of a pedestrian.
    May we never hear such unfortunate news anymore.

  5. I hope he should have a refuah Shelima and we should hear besuros tovos. I don’t know the details of the accident however I do know that if you are on oak street and need to make a left onto route 9, you can be there a while before it is safe to go. It would be great if they had a light there. Oak street has many schools so it can get busy especially on days when there is no busing. Again wishing this Bachur a speedy recovery!

  6. I think there should be some education in yeshiva about bike safety, and the rules of the road. That being said hatzalah and police should take bikes away for cyclists without helmets, parents can claim it with a penalty.

  7. Lakewood have too much traffic it’s not the place for bicycles anymore we got the buses
    Is going to keep opening again and again.

  8. Let’s start a new campaign to pay for helmets for kids riding $500 bikes. After spending all their $& on the bike they have nothing left to buy a helmet.

  9. I’m sorry for this boys injury. This is happening way too frequently. Maybe the school should have a course in road rules and bicycle safety. This child should have been wearing a helmet. Also pedestrian need to cross at cross walks and not in the middle block. Educate your children on road safety.

  10. new organization

    what makes you think it was a$500 bike? what does the story have to do with price of bikes anyway? most kids I know spend way less than that and your comment was very insensitive to some people!

  11. maul when i was in yeshiva in schangchai we never had this thing called a bike i guess this is a new thing mitamul today in 2015 oy vey we need moshiach
