PHOTO: Intersection of Fatal Accident Gets Flashing Stop Signs

flashing monmouth x county stopPHOTO: The intersection of County Line Road and Monmouth Avenue – the intersection of the fatal accident involving an overturned school bus – has received flashing stop signs on Friday.

The stop signs – which will replace the current stop signs – were initially requested by a local resident who offered to pay for the stop signs in order to improve safety at the intersection. The resident approached Committeeman Meir Lichtenstein, who in turn turned to the County with the offer.

However, the County responded that despite its well-intended purpose, work can only be performed at the intersection if warranted by the County. And if warranted, the County would install it on its own. It turns out the stop signs were warranted.

The signs were installed on both sides of County Line Road along Monmouth Avenue, as well as by Kennedy Boulevard. [TLS]

  1. Bad idea, here come the traffic nightmares. Drivers need only go one block east to Princeton Ave to cross safely at the traffic light. Can’t understand how it warrants a stop sign. It’s like putting a stop sign on River Ave a block north of Prospect.

  2. It seems to me like the article is saying that they put up flashing stop signs to replace the current stop signs on Monmouth Ave, not new stop signs on County Line.

  3. Wow. Is it just me ? Isnt this just a little too much red tape for, essentially, just adding little flashers to an existing Stop Sign ? This wouldn’t be happening in Texas !!

  4. Signs, signs, signs!! Fine. But DRIVE NORMALLY!!! They say you can tell about a person’s middos from behind a computer screen and from behind the wheel of a car. In both cases there is a sense of anonymity where a person feels they are not so much being seen or held as responsible. So people tend to act less considerate. Hence, cyber bullying and car accidents. DO NOT BE A SELF-CENTERED DRIVER and the accident rate will drop and lives will be saved.

    This includes not running stop signs, passing on the left on side streets when the car ahead of you is turning left, speeding down side streets, tailgating, trying to find a clear path to drive in traffic which is not part of the road system or the painted lines, making believe there are no other cars on the road and driving as though they are all in your way when you are trying to go from Point A to Point B. Show true middos even when you think no one is watching or you wont get credit for it.

  5. Also, want to add to “T” comments. Stop driving in shoulder as if were a legal lane. It is NOT a passing lane. Not supposed to pass on right anyway. See this all the time. Where is everyone rushing? Leave a little earlier than you don’t have to do illegal things on the road. How about going back to being courteous on the roads to one another. As for the pedestrians — please cross legally at proper locations (not in the middle of the road). It will be a nightmare if there are stop signs and traffic signs every where. There are some really bad drivers in Lakewood — you can tell by their cars — check out the dents.
