singer on lkwd schoo buesEXCLUSIVE VIDEO: In response to the recent tragic events involving school buses in Lakewood, State Senator Robert Singer, in an exclusive interview with TLS, said he wants to see an end to these horrific accidents.

Singer, whose headquarters is in Lakewood, says he sees first hand the many issues Lakewood faces with the transportation of the tens of thousands of students to school each day, but says there are many issues which could be avoided as well.

To begin tackling the issues, the Senator proposed creating  a local task force to address the problems, and discuss possible solutions.

If solutions involve proposing change on a state level, the Senator says he is ready to step in and assist.

  1. I see bus drivers that cross over Madison even when only a right turn is permitted. Drivers keep the law! All of you, bus drivers and personal vehicle drivers!

  2. I second anon.
    The bus companies want to make lots of money and I would say it seems they put the drivers on such a tight schedule. Growing up bus drivers were the safest drivers. Not anymore.
    Yes, even years ago there were accidents with busses, in fact my best friend was killed when he was run over by a bus driver (a substitute driver who didn’t know where to stop)
    I believe there should be a reporting system to report safety violations with bus drivers. I have called the bus companies they go nowhere.
    If their Contract with the Boe was based on their safety record, I’ll bet they will drive safer.

  3. on sunday i was driving in westgate and a person was in the cross walk i stopped so they could cross. the drive behind me drove around me on the left side to pass. then we came to the next intersection and there was another person in the middle of the cross walk and this car again swerved to not hit them. once i was close enough behind the car i saw that he was on the phone. When we got to the entrance of West Gate he didn’t even stop at the stop sign. the only way we are going to change the driving habits of people in this town is if the cops give out more tickets or something bad happens to these dangerous and reckless drivers.

  4. can we all be a little more patient while driving? & put the safety of our children before us?

    what if it is one of ours own child? would we not stop immediately? well every child is a child of Hashem & our brothers In klal yisroel no matter what the age is.

    Can YOU join the safety campaign to prevent more tragedies from happening C”V

    To let everyone know that you join this safety campaign rate this message & show hashem you have your life priorities on straight

  5. For years I have been thinking that New Jersey should institute the same law as Brooklyn that buses must cross diagonally and then stop to pick up or drop off children on two way streets. Like this they don’t allow cars to pass the bus. Such a simple solution to a huge safety concern.
