Lakewood Mayor Ray Coles responds to your ‘Ask The Mayor’ questions: 4-way

The following is an ‘Ask The Mayor’ question submitted to TLS, and the Mayor’s response. Email your questions for the Mayor to [email protected].


Dear Mayor Coles,


I live around the corner from the intersection of CLIFTON & COURTNEY. It’s a very busy intersection as BAIS FAIGA is on Courtney. There are a lot of children, cars and buses. Clifton is a very wide street which lends itself to cars going more than 25 mph. Worse , is, when there is a wedding at night and you can’t see pedestrians. It is extremely difficult to turn onto Clifton,e specially when you can’t see past the parked cars.

I have been requesting a 4 way stop sign there for at least 10 years now, from my personal friends in the local government. I was instrumental in getting them to put 4 way sops at a number of intersections but I hit a brick wall with this one. Is there any reason why this intersection is different? Your response would be greatly appreciated.


Response from Mayor Coles:

Good morning Dov,

I forwarded the request to Traffic & Safety to look into the 4 way stop there.

  1. Clifton and Courtney is a good location for 4way stop signs. However 4 way stop signs are really needed at Clifton and 6th Street, so please, Mayor Coles, include that request. Thanks in advance
