  1. I hate Lakewood drivers ! Cell phones. Stop signs. Yielding 4 pedestrians. Speeding. Let us blame the web site. “Real Man of chocma”

  2. why are there no pedestrian crossing stanchions at each crossing on forest? they have them in front of georgian court and they have nobody crossing there.i guess our neighbors value human life more than getting somewhere quickly.do it now before we regret it.they cost 150 dollars a stanchion.it is 4 points on your license if you do not stop 4 a pedestrian. maybe oorah wants to advertise on them?
    not a bad idea,whoever buys them can sell ads.if we dont care about life,i know we care about money.

  3. People need to stay off the cell phones.
    Put your lights on at dusk.
    And slow down….Forest ave should have a 15 mile an hour speed limit enforced especially coming up and down that hill
    Maybe more traffic lights are needed

  4. I’m the driver of that car. I was not on the phone driving 20mph(limit25) the child was wearing very dark clothing, head covered by hood, hands covered.there is very bad lighting there. While I have seen terrible driving this was not a case of it. B’H I hit the brakes hard as soon as he came into my headlights and we can all spew intellectual insight instead of greif.

  5. According to the NJ State MVC,

    A Speed of 20 mph, Reaction distance 22 ft, Braking distance 25 ft,
    with a Total distance of 47 ft for a driver to stop his vehicle going 20 mph.
