  1. ATTN Women,
    When waiting by a street corner on Madison Avenue schmoozing with your friend/sister in law/whoever, please make sure that your stroller with your cute/adorable little shayfeleh/zeeskeit is not sticking out into the street in the right lane.

  2. this town doen’t need more lights, ive lived her 30 yrs w no problems. why the need for the lights at every intersection now? north lake and hope. south lake and hope. new central and central? lets get real. what the state needs to do is add a common sense portion to the driver’s test. alot of people would be taking public transportation in this town…

  3. to #4:

    The reason you didn’t need lights here 30 years ago was because there were only 30 people here…

    And it’s not always about common sense. There are several intersections in Lakewood where vision is obstructed because of parked cars, curves in the road, etc…..

  4. this town packs in more & more & more people. this type of thing is only going to get worse. and the community keeps complaining. some people create their own problems, and just don’t see it…!!

  5. to#11…they werent patients before they tried to cross there. but they are now because of the way they drive and walk around in this town..!!

  6. ARGUING OVER THIS??? REALLY?? LETS HOPE AND PRAY THE CHILD IS OK LETS ALL HOPE AND PRAY FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY SINCE THE MOM HAD NO LIFE THREATING INJURIES!! WE ALL NEED TO PAY MORE ATTENTION BEHIND THE WHEEL WHILE DRIVING REGAURDLESS OF WHERE THERE IS CROSSWALKS OR TRAFFIC LIGHTS…PRAYING FOR SPEEDY RECOVERY FOR CHILD AND MOM!

  7. When you live in a town where everyone is allowed to behave like they want ,whenever they want ,this is what happens.

    Bad behavior collapses onto itself . I agree we don’t need more lights that’s not going to replace or change behavior. Then people will just ignore lights !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. A mother that pushes her child in a carriage, out on to a busy roadway, where there is no crosswalk is an accident waiting to happen. Mothers need to protect their children, and cross only at crosswalks.

    A driver that does not view an incursion of pedestrians into a travel lane as a critical issue, is an accident waiting to happen.

    Drivers need to be alert, and drive in a safe and defensive manner. Stay off the phones, concentrate on driving, view the roadway at a distance, taking into account that pedestrians will sometimes enter the roadway.

    Everyone needs to cooperate. In spite of all of the rules, some accidents will occur; but the objective is to reduce the number and seriousness of the accident.
