Thank you for all your hard work for our town.
Question-I’ve seen in other towns that at a certain time of night, most traffic lights change into blinking four way stop signs. Can that be implemented here in Lakewood? Most intersections quiet down tremendously, and it would be very convenient.
Thank you, Moe
Response from Mayor Coles:
Many of the towns I have seen do this are smaller towns that do not have much nighttime traffic, such as shore towns in the fall and winter. Lakewood really does not have a time of day where traffic is almost nonexistent. It is a good idea however, and we have converted several locations to this flashing arrangement where we can demonstrate that traffic is significantly reduced during the overnight hours. If you have a particular intersection you feel may benefit from this please let me know & I will ask Traffic & Safety to investigate.
Thanks for reaching out.
