  1. Why lately has there been so many accidents on new Hampshire avenue? Any idea

    No sidewalks
    Very quick highway
    Many other reasons

    Perhaps time to lower the speed limit

  2. To shlomo lower speed limit ? Maybe can pedestrian traffic ? Vehicles also need space . Higher speeds are needed for people to be able to move somewhat in the traffic nightmare called lakewood ? Before you suggest solutions first let’s find out who’s fault this was

  3. This has nothing to do with speed limits. It’s new Hampshire and Locust. We need more sidewalks and we need to be careful while driving. We’re all too distracted that we can’t just sit and drive. Pay attention to the road in front of you. Don’t do anything else. Your car is a dangerous piece of equipment if not handled correctly.

  4. This happened at the very edge of Lakewood and TR. Folks going and comin from TR need to slow down. Aggressive drivers fly through our town and then have the chutzpah to blame Lakewood. Get a life and slow down.

  5. I absolutely agree with the last comment. Not only is this not to blame the lakewood community, but as a matter fact it was a police officer. There are many times when you see police officers on their phones and they DO have permission to talk on their phones while they’re driving. However that does not give them the right to do things that are reckless and put other people in danger . Now, I am not saying that this officer was driving reckless, I am just saying that many times we see officers driving and reckless way. I also want to mention how many times we see police man putting on their lights just to get ahead of somebody or make it through a red light and then turning off the lights and continuing on their merry way. I do salute the police officers and blue lives matter but in that vain ,every life matters. made the victim have a speedy recovery
