  1. that’s what happens when there is no law enforcement in 08701.
    ever notice how many people park illegally on a daily basis in this town !
    insanity and dangerous!

  2. I couldn’t see anything unusual about the way the kids got off the bus. Perhaps you mean the way the bus stopped on an angle? If yes, then it’s just that you probably haven’t been around Brooklyn often, because all the cheder buses make stops like that in order to ensure that traffic is blocked somewhat to help the kids to cross busy or congested streets. If you’ve never seen it before, then I suppose it would look unusual.

  3. The only question that remains for me is why the cars behind the bus kept passing it. However, I can’t see from the video whether the lights were flashing yellow or red when they passed.

  4. I wouldn’t give these people a ticket, I would take away their driver’s license for a year.

    But just for fun, I’ll take a go at this.

    The bus drives the same route every day and drops off the same kids. The commuters drive the same route every day, and have gained an understanding of this bus route. The commuters have learned that all the kids getting off at this particular stop cross over river ave and they therefore feel confident in passing on the right.

    ‘שומר פתאים ה

  5. Maybe the bus driver forgot to put on his red lights.
    Also I agree that people should not be flying near a school bus when he comes to a full stop.
    Everyone should of stopped and look carefully what is going on.
    It is obvious that he forgot to put the red lights on.

    • Just curious, why is it illegal for a school bus to stop on Rt9 and not Rt70 or is that illegal as well? Bus stops all the time in front of the apartment complex before New Hampshire heading east? Was trying to find information quickly through a google search, but nothing popped up.
      I would agree it is dangerous for all but should be no different than any other roadway, all traffic stops. The 4 cars that passed the bus on the right shoudl be found and ticketed.
      Based on that video I can see why the bus turns into the center / oncoming lane so the kids have a semi-safe place to get off the bus otherwise one of those cars would have hit someone.

  6. Self absorbed people. Self serving government more concerned about giving schools permission to make halls without proper parking then childrens safety.
    How about this no more special interests ordinances or permits till we get the traffic\driving under control

  7. Why do buses stop on rt 9 and if they have to why every block it’s the main artery of Lakewood keep the busses on the side roads it’s a 4 lane highway and the bus was across the road maybe they can’t see the lights

    • Problem is, in Lakewood, there is no such thing as side roads. It’s all cul-de-sacs along route 9.
      As we know already, the children tunning Lakewood have no clue about smart planning.

  8. I think they were likely turning from the shopping center on to Rt 9 /making a right and the buses body shielded them from seeing the flashing stop sign arm that was protruding.
    This happened to me once (where I was screened, not here specifically) and I had to slam on the brakes.

    A simple solution is for the buses to have Stop sign arms on both sides of the bus. Idk why this isn’t a law yet.
    May we feel no more pain

  9. I think they couldn’t see the bus lights at that angle,but, if you see a school bus stopped in the middle of the road, I think you should stop and not pass it.

  10. The bus driver should not be letting kids off smack in the middle of route 9. THAT is illegal. He should pull over safely and not hold up traffic at such a busy intersection.

  11. Starts off yellow then turns red.
    Busses should be on the correct side of the road to make drop-offs on Rt. 9.
    Still no excuse not to stop when bus is flashing red.
    My friend got community service for accidentally passing a bus.
    More cops on the road?
    Seriously are the police paid off in this town not to enforce the law?
