  1. Hello Hello Hello
    Where is the common sense?
    Do you really think that the guy sitting high up in the truck saw your car?
    No way
    He would have to bend his head and look down towards your direction in order to properly see you.
    Never assume anything these days.

  2. I have lived here for 68 years and am sorry to say the town is a death trap, I have driven to town once in the last 15 years. My heart is broken for what these people have done.

      Writing “these people” is not anti-Semitic here. Lakewood cannot continue driving as though goyish traffic laws are a gemara that they found a cool sevarah about and think that by being a smart gemara-kop they can get away with something just because it has a slight chance of working out.
      All driving decisions for merging lanes, changing lanes, and turning require decisions that have some danger involved, but you should not be making driving decisions that are not at least 85% safe.
      For example, I won’t turn left when traffic is coming if the car coming is close enough that my turn will cause their heart to drop for even half a second- I wouldn’t like if someone did it to me that way. And if the light turns yellow when I’m more than a quarter of a block away I slow down and stop and don’t try to charge through it- if it’s necessary once, I do, but otherwise every person driving every day every time with high risk and just playing Russian roulette on it is dumb.
      I once timed the red light at one of the longest red lights in town- the one at the CVS by Route 88 and New Hampshire- and I thought for sure it was going to be 5 minutes. Even if it was 5 minutes, you really have your schedule so perfectly timed that 5 minutes is going to throw everything off? I would love to know how to be so scheduled to the minute like that.
      Well, guess what? It wasn’t 5 minutes. The way that feels like 10 minutes was actually only exactly 1 minute and 41 seconds.
      Do you really not have 2 minutes in your day, a couple times a day, to sacrifice to make this town safer?
