  1. Now how about activating the light on Avenue of the States and Pine Street which has been scene of many accidents as well. This light was put in several years ago at no cost to the township but has been flashing yellow instead of being activated and used as a real traffic light

  2. I wonder if this will really solve any problems, or will Prospect back up all the way from the 9 till the light.

    They also plan on putting in a light on Prospect and Massachusetts as well as Prospect and Cross. Will this make Prospect the next parking lot in town?

    There are too many cars on the road, and not enough streets. Lights may solve one problem, but create another.

  3. At just wondering
    it’s better to fix the prob of safty and creating a parking lot prob then the other way around. and to all those complaining just say Ty, wen we don’t have one everyone says “o If this town would put up lights will b fine” and then wen they do put one up everyone is negative.
    #allways looking to complain

  4. responding to comment #7 where are there too many lights? at the rate that people are building way more lights are needed. maybe you dont drive much but for people going to learn, going to work , taking their kidsto school and playgroup and basically doing errands lights are a dire necessity. We just hope the new light on williams and prospect has a turn signal otherwise it will just be like to one on kennedy blvd. and route 9 its totally unreal

  5. The light is great and there should be more. But… WHY do people speed up to 40,50 & 60 MPH down Williams Street when the posted signs clearly say 25 MPH. How about what we used to do in NYC. The cat and mouse game. An unmarked car with a speed camera/gun is parked out of sight in front of a Truck (part of the operation). Another one or two are on the side street out of site. Speeder comes, car 1 radios car 3 “White Sienna, 45”, Car 2 responds with Sirens & Lights upon close approach and pulls over onto right Prospect Shoulder. Takes license, keys and registration. Instructs driver and passengers to remain in car with hands visible. Stays there. Next, car 1 picks out “Odyssey Silver, 52,” radios car 2 & 3, car 3 pursues and instructs to join Car 2 on James, escorts there, Car 2 officer takes keys, license and registration. Car 3 returns to position. Rinse and repeat. Works beautifully every time. Cars on opposite direction observe speed limit and Car 2 rakes it in on speeding and various other goodies for the township like expired inspections, faulty lights, tires, expired regs, insurance, licenses and who knows what else. I once got us a $!50K Benz that we auctioned for $80K, someone got lucky. Traffic stops can be a goldmine, as well as dangerous – so be careful. Upshot is that whenever someone sees a truck parked they’ll think twice. We took it even further, used only one marked car at the finish line. The truck had the trap. Unmarked confiscated Mustang with lights and sirens and PA was the cat car. The guys where called “The Gold Miners”, even had a patch made. But here we put 2 or 3 marked cars with officers sitting or standing around using the cars as warning lights to protect the guys fixing the potholes or installing the traffic lights or cables when a couple of standalone flashing lights and fluorescent traffic cones can do the job while are guys are back on patrol and earning their pay for the jobs they do best. You decide if I’m right and tell your elected officials to use their common sense.
