New At 7th And Madison: Drive Across And Get A Ticket

New sign 7th Madison_wmNOTICE: If you drive across Madison Avenue at 7th Street and you get pulled over, don’t be surprised. In an effort to ease congestion at the intersection, a new sign has just been placed at the corner (Clifton side) reading “Right turn only weekdays 7a.m.-7p.m.”- making it illegal to cross over Madison during weekdays. Turning left is also now illegal.

  1. Just wondering…. Have you checked this out with the Traffice Dept.?
    Maybe just left turns are not allowed?
    And my Rye’ah is that on the other side there isn’t a sing (or is there?)

  2. this is insane how am i supposed to get to yeshiva, istead they should put a traffic light there, also how does this ease congestion ? madison has right of way, it dont add up

  3. Is is shayach that this rule should only apply during the zman and not during bein hazmanim?? It’s a bigger to’eles harabim that way.. LOL

  4. I hear officer butterworth is in charge of the new traffic patterns, im sure he wouldn’t make a change if it did not benefit the community

  5. It’s turning into a mini B.P. with one way streets & right turn only. I hate B.P. traffic and that is just what is happening here real soon. What next, NO TURN ON REDS either??

  6. Maybe they should have the Darkanu bus stop somewhere else less congested too. That causes a lot of traffic on that corner as well.

    Btw, can’t anyone here spell??

  7. also,. Lexington @ 88, 1st, 3rd, 5th @ Madison, and 1st St is going to be 1 way from Clifton to Monmoth the other way.

  8. The important lesson here is to know in which direction the road of life you have chosen to be on will lead you.. so before you embark on that road, make sure you are aware of the eventual consequence!!

  9. This could actually make Route 9 even MORE backed up at 6th & 9th until the dedicated left turn lanes are installed. That isn’t supposed to happen for another year.

  10. What is the big deal? If you need to get across the street just go to the next light. If you dont like how the town is being run why dont you just move out. They try their hardest to please everyone yet there are still plenty of people still not happy.

  11. move to another shtetil if you dont like it . clevland has blinking lights all over passed 11 oclock. all reds are blinking there . great place to live to

  12. speaking of spelling . Take a look in your own mirror . What does BTW mean? . Also where did you learn grammer and punctuation? Or did you win that knowlege in an oorah lottery?

    Get ready for 6 and 9 to be further backed up. This is a short term solution. M
    Its going to help the shiduch crisis because the girls are going to be spending more time on the roads looking for the right way so the age gap will soon end . Its worth the hassle just for the shidduch crisis alone

  14. We should be able to get out of poverty real soon with all of these new traffic laws, just hink of how many tickets can be easily generated in one day.
