  1. Rabbosai:
    I am using this unfortunate besurah to educate. 
    How many korbonos do we need until we get this in our head: 
    DO NOT HITCH AT NIGHT especially when it is raining and foggy. 

    You were standing at Central and Columbus and trying to hitch– tonight– WITHOUT A REFLECTOR. 
    Bist du normal? 
    I just don’t get it.
    Nobody could see you. 
    Parents — please– ich bet eich: 
    educate your children and teenagers not to hitch escpecially at night and especially without a reflector. 

    How many more storys do we have to read. 

    I am sick to my stomach. 

    Let it be a freilichen Chanukah to all. 

    Please RBSO. Geb seichel for these unfortunate people. 

    Vechoneinu meitcha chochma beena vaddaas or deya beena vahaskeil. I don’t care which noosach. 
     seichel is a teyere Zach. Use your brains.

    May the RBSO continue to protect all.  

  2. The person hit on river ave. came out with just a few scratches and has not been taken to the hospital. But thats not the point. Do you see how many “pedestrians struck” have been reported in lakewood in just the past week??
    we must do something about better lighting in the streets so people can be seen. and until thats done…wear a reflector if you care about your life! and dont forget to drive carefully, always looking for people who maybe walking at the side of the road where there is no sidewalk…

  3. It seems that this kind of casualty is the most preventable type of accident in our town…but there is obviously much more to be done.

    How about we start introducing in our stores reversible high visibility coats – the kind police officers wear. See following link:
    New Port Harbor also customizes for special orders.

    I’m not sure about the best way to introduce this, but I’m sure there are enough individuals concerned with the Mitzva of Lo Taamod…to brainstorm on the topic and eventually get sponsors to offset the costs.

    Please speak up and tell us what you think of the idea and if you want to get involved.

    Kol Hamatzil…is a very special Zchus!

  4. Please put the reflectors on do we need anymore accidents. The town cannot put up any more lights. There is no money to pay for them. Also the residents will complain it is to bright now.
