Submitted: Holiday Coming Up

Hello, Jackson resident concerned especially with another holiday coming up.

Yesterday morning at 6:30 am, still dark out, I was driving down brewers bridge and missed a gentleman crossing the road by minimal inches. He was not in a cross walk and the speed limit is 35. Thankfully I wasn’t speeding, but this almost was a disaster, it scared my child and myself.

It just happened tonight again a man ran across, but we need lights and reflectors. Brewers bridge road is not well lit. I’m all for prayer services going on, but maybe this holiday we can ask the community to place some lighting so a tragedy doesn’t happen.

Thank you

  1. Lighting is a township issue.
    What the oilem can do is to wear reflectors if they live on a dark street. I mean, I forget to do this too… so I suppose this is an issue that needs chizuk by one and all.

  2. Yiden have a chiyuv of V’nishmartem. So if the roads are dark one needs to be visible using their own methods. That would appear to be the halacha. I’m not a posek, just making a suggestion .

  3. People who cross the street know that there are no lights. The township does not have to place lights everywhere. Maybe Lakewood became a big city (unfortunately), but Jackson is still a suburban area and some roads are dark. That’s the reality. People have to be careful and should not cross a dark road at night when they can’t be seen easily. If you take that risk, at least wear reflectors so the driver’s can possibly see you. You left Brooklyn. Adjust accordingly.
