    • Thats quite the observation.
      You seem to be under-informed of what confusion and perception can cause. Before you jump to condemnation… get informed.

  1. I’m appalled. Is that what it takes for the County to move on securing our intersections? 12 taped accidents and months of media coverage?

    The Cedar Bridge & New Hampshire intersection is even worst and they haven’t done anything about it too. What’s going on??

  2. To midnight. Respectfully, just too many impatient hot heads. I just call ’em like a see ’em. On a lighter note, have a wonderful Shabout holiday season. Thank you for your imput.

  3. To comment number 2: I got informed just by watching the video that accompanies this subject. It seems as though the stop sign is a mere suggestion.

  4. !st of all, Mazel Tov to that whole area for finally getting a 4-way stop. Thanx TLS for keeping the pressure on. Contrary to post # 1 – That sign will greatly help the situation on that corner.
    Second of all – That compilation is Fan-Tas-Tic.
    You gotta set that to some music –
    It’s Awesome !!

  5. Thank you to whoever made this possible. I drive by this intersection four times a day and each time I do, I am mispallel for safety. I hope that there will be cops stationed there at the beginning to make sure people notice the new traffic pattern and stop when they are meant to.

  6. To Grrreat. Putting levity aside, a four way stop sign will will prove to be as ineffective as a two way stop sign. I’ve seen it with my own eyes. To Grrreat: Have a wonderful & meaningful Shabout holiday. May Bore’ Olam protect us all.

  7. I hope, Biezrat Hashem, that this new 4 way stop sign installation does ameliorate the situation ?. A wonderful and meaningful Shabout holiday season to all commentators on this subject.

  8. I pass that intersection almost every day. The four way stop is great! Who do we thank for this?

    To “Outsider looking in”:

    Lakewood has a very high percentage of young male drivers who try to get more done in less time. I am proud to be part of these people. Considering the situation, I am actually impressed by the patience displayed by most Lakewood natives.

    But in this particular intersection, drivers coming from Ridge thought that 7th street drivers had a stop sign. However, the 7th street drivers did not stop because they had no stop sign!

    Watch the video. Drivers on 7th Street (bottom left upper right in the clips) have no stop sign.

    P.S. Thanks TLS.

  9. It would actually be nice & perhaps informative if TLS would revisit the intersection in question where the 4 way stop sign was installed at future date to testify to its effectiveness. If it’s ameliorated the problem, Mabrouck!! To Excellent- I appreciate your enlightening me on the situation. Have a wonderful and meaningful Shabout holiday season. Bore’ Olam should protect us all.

  10. The Four Rules of Four-Way Stops:
    1. First to arrive, first to go. The first car to pull up to the stop sign is the first car that gets to proceed. …
    2. Tie goes to the right. Sometimes two cars stop at the intersection at the exact same time, or at least close to the same time. …
    3. Straight before turns. …
    4. Right then left.

  11. After viewing the video that accompanies this article, I’m wondering if all the drivers that were involved in the traffic accidents shown thought they had the right of way.
