      • To reitterate: A red turning arrow. Like we have by madison and County Kennedy. When the light turns red on Kennedy the ppl turning from Madison onto Kennedy have a turning arrow. After 15 seconds it becomes red and the straight lanes go. Now when Madison turns yellow/red the turning lanes already are long stopped saving UNTOLD AGMAS NEFESH

    • You are allowed to pull into the intersection on a yellow and make the left turn on the red light.
      The person making the left should have waited for the oncoming traffic to stop then made the left.
      The driver going straight should not have gone through the red light.

  1. Does anybody in this town know what your suppose to do when the traffic light turns red? Grid locking the intersection is another favorite when we have a red light. Police need to enforce traffic laws in the town!

  2. I am going to show this video to my HS daughter who is taking drivers Ed as a “what did this driver do wrong” lesson. The answer is that as a teenage driver, she turned because the car in front of her turned. An easy mistake for a teen to make, like crossing the street without checking because the person in front of you did. One of the most important lessons to learn as a teen thriving a car is that you need to check all directions for yourself and not rely on the drivers around you. I hope they all have a speedy Refuah sheleima and are able to drive again quickly.

    • This is the 2nd accident in under 2 weeks involving teenagers (that I know of-and I don’t know who was driving in this case) but regardless of fault – all drivers need reminders and especially those who just got their licenses – not only as to the traffic laws but defensive driving as well. A refuah sheleimah to all involved.

  3. To one commenter on here – yellow does not mean stop. It means slow down and proceed with caution. Red is stop. Green is go. If you dont “use the colors” correctly, traffic will not flow, there will be accidents
    and probably road rage!

    • That commenter is correct for NJ. Here’s what the statute says, “Amber, or yellow, when shown alone following green means traffic to stop before entering the intersection or nearest crosswalk, unless when the amber appears the vehicle or street car is so close to the intersection that with suitable brakes it cannot be stopped in safety. A distance of fifty feet from the intersection is considered a safe stopping distance for a speed of twenty miles per hour, and vehicles and street cars if within that distance when the amber appears alone, and which cannot be stopped with safety, may proceed across the intersection or make a right or left turn unless the turning movement is specifically limited.”

      NJ Rev Stat § 39:4-105 (2013)

  4. Person going straight did nothing wrong, Turning left, you need to make sure there’s nobody coming straight.

    Refuah Sheleima to all. Besuros Tovos!

  5. The problem here is not about how people are driving. Chai urgent care needs to expand and open an emergency room at this intersection.
    All problems solved.

  6. Hats off to Hatzolah ????????????. I am not of the same faith, however these folks are deserving of the utmost respect and appreciation for their dedication and professionalism. God bless them. Can we look forward to seeing some Ezras Nassim supporting Hatzolah soon?

  7. To Chaim at 5:47pm. What do you mean by “It’s not about how people drive”? IT’S ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT HOW PEOPLE DRIVE HERE. You’ve got to be kidding. Anyway, Kol Tuv.
