PHOTOS: 1948 newspaper reports about Lakewood judge’s punishment of a Brooklyn driver

Apparently the ‘Brooklyn-style driving’ many complain about, isn’t a new thing. It was an issue nearly 70 years ago too.

A video report about the incident emerged about two years ago (YouTube), but TLS obtained a copy of newspaper reports from that incident.

One of the reports reads, “Motorist Howard E. Phillips of Brooklyn, NY, pays the penalty after having passed a school
bus while it was discharging children at Lakewood, NJ. The judge ordered Phillips to write 100 times on a school blackboard “I must not pass a school bus in Lakewood, NJ,” and the arresting officer, Patrolman William Fitzgerald (right) made sure the sentence was carriad out.”

See the attached newspaper reports.
