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.
OMG am I the only one who sees the article in that longer page about 2004 predictions?
Almost all off except what’s written about men and woman
If I were a decedent of this Howard Phillps I would sue Lakewood for all kinds of Money.
Bring those punishments back!! We would all be driving like normal people – hundred dollar fines don’t do the job
five thousand dollar fines might just do it
yes!! More of those type of punishments WITH heavy fines- lets go! #nomorebrooklyndriving
