  1. so funny. there are barely any accidents in the area that those are being placed. thats near arlington and martin luther. no shaychus!! its being implemented by engineers that did a study and on paper that’s what made sense to them. but as a resident of this area for 18 years-its a waste of money and isnt worth anything and its certainly not appreciated.

  2. Not something to be prod of.

    In the name of pedestrian safety… What about when emergency vehicles need to pass? Now there is nowhere for them to go.

    Cedarbrige is now a cluttered, trafficy road.

  3. Thank you! I was in an accident years back on Cedarbridge and had multiple surgeries all from someone making an illegal left turn. I’m still suffering daily. My family has been greatly affected. If this can prevent any accidents it’s worth every penny!

    • And I almost had an accident because a car trying to make a left didn’t realize that this dangerous low median that is only installed on parts of the road, was in their way!

      • I dont feel bad.
        You shouldn’t be turning there.
        Its illegal. It has 2 double yellow lines for a reason. Learn how to drive and then you won’t have this issue.

        • I was actually the one going straight! – Feel bad?! Anyone making an illegal turn (esp. by mistake) deserve to die? Btw a 2 double line is for passing only – it’s not illegal to turn or u turn on a double yellow do your research! And if a cop gives you a ticket, still doesn’t make it illegal!

          • There are some shopping centers in town that say right turn only to exit. Left turns are illegal. If people drove safe then there would be no need to have a median. No one wants to spend money and build things for no reason. There is obviously a need proven by statistics.

  4. What about a lane to make a right turn from Cedar bridge on to MLK???
    They have a left turn lane going into carpet place, that makes no sense at all!
    The traffic that builds up all the way to Hurley n up a Clifton is crazy!
    Whoever thought up these traffic patterns must’ve never driven on cedar bridge before
    They township Needs to change this in order to keep traffic flowing

  5. sorry for ur tzaar and surgeries…i dont wish ur plight on anyone from us…but u said that someone made an illegal left?? so that’s great-lets put up barriers all across planet earth to prevent those illegal left turners!! is that what ur saying?? are u serious????

    • No one is saying that these medians should be everywhere but coming out of shopping plaza’s is not a reason to make an illegal left. I’m not part of the government that decided this but I have seen many accidents where people made illegal left turns out of shopping plazas. If people would be careful to follow the laws of driving then this might not have been necessary.

    • If that’s the only way people will follow the rules… then YES! Let’s put up barriers everywhere.

  6. So greatful!
    They need to do this Is all over Lakewood.
    Those that are upset, are upset they won’t be able to make the illegal turns. It’s unfortunate that you would need a median in order to stop people from making the illegal turns which are dangerous and can cause serious accidents.

    • Its perfectly legal to make a left turn there, so drive down here before making stupid comments.
      The lanes are so narrow that its begging for an accident.

  7. Question– with the barriers how is one supposed to get to the stores on the how are we supposed to get to the other side of the road?

    I never go to Cookie Corner or the stores there as i dont know how to get there heading east on cederbridge.

    Now im not able to go to simi’s socks n shells ir trendsetting either.
