I know many people won’t like this suggestion, but here it is anyway.
It’s no secret that there are dozens of accidents in our area every single week. Now, I will make a disclaimer, I did not look at statistics to compare this area to other towns in New Jersey. Even if it’s 20 accidents a week, that’s 20 accidents too many.
I am also not bringing in any race or religion into this – accidents happen everywhere, in every circle.
I have a suggestion which may not be popular, but I believe it will save lives:
Retest all drivers every five years.
Unfortunately, many drivers pick up terrible habits, and many don’t even realize it. Whether it’s speeding, illegal turns or anything else, some are just terrible and dangerous drivers. This requirement will keep drivers in check.
If this suggestion saves even one life down the line, it was well worth it. It could just be your loved one that’s saved.
Thank you for listening.
