  1. Now more than ever, we need public transportation. The bottom line is, investing heavily in public transportation puts more people to work and improves saftey.Cities with good public transit spend less money on road maintenance, and have more money available to meet other needs

  2. Lakewood is one of the most populous towns in Ocean County. These numbers should be calculated based on percentage of the population. Let the new census data come out and then have an accurate analysis.

  3. Gosh I wonder why..this town is littered with vehicles everywhere..its a wonder there are not more accidents and fatalities here. No one cares we are all in a rush to go no place fast..Lets just slow down for once

  4. Exactly, it’s littered with vehicles, that’s what happens when you have a large population. As such, the numbers reflect, per-capita, that’s it’s around even with the other towns.

  5. We need the train back. Senator Bob how about you and Assemblywoman Cleopatra get the ball rolling again and talk some sense into those folks from Middlesex and Monmouth who are stopping the return of the BLUE COMET.

  6. #3 statistics are skewed is concerned about the population and census numbers….are u kidding me…one life lost to such a trajedy as an automobile crash is one life too many,,,who cares how many people live here..

  7. Too many people who cant’ drive and don’t care about anybody but themselves. I had someone make a u turn on somerset right after she made the turn off county line . No common sense to pull into a driveway or better yet the next street. And then everyone wonders how can this happen.
