  1. These State Police come here and just cause a major traffic headache every single time. Stopping vehicles in traffic lanes, blocking traffic and in general causing major backups.

  2. Is this a surprise? For the past several weeks, Lakewood has had at least one serious auto accident every day!!!

    Remember. The police are here to protect us.

  3. They should be there every day until the driving becomes safe. If you follow this website you would know that driving in Lakewood and the surrounding town is extremely reckless. The accidents are becoming more frequent and more extreme.

  4. I bet they’d never do this in a mostly African American neighborhood.
    We should surround them and force them out of town.
    Most accidents do NOT happen near Yeshiva or other places they visit. new Hampshire & Cedarbridge and RT 70 have the most accidents. They should stay there. Us Jews are losers for allowing this.
    JLM!!

    • Not sure why you think that is true. I was on a street where one of these pictures were posted and out of nowhere, a car who had a stop sign came shooting out at me. And there was a post a few days ago of an collision on 7th and Clifton. Maybe there are some intersections that are more dangerous than others, but you cannot disagree that the dangerous driving is all over town!
      And about Yeshiva area, when you drive down the block, count how many cars are parked illegally – which is also Extremely Dangerous.

  5. I guess it’s cheaper for the state to send in their police than help us out and pay for some roads and widening of State roads. If we had some normal infrastructure here a lot of the madness would disappear.

  6. Time to fix up the roads and facilitate flow of traffic
    State police are not here to reduce accidents, give me a break
    My car keeps needing repair bc of the poor road conditions not bc of driving over the speed limit

  7. Well, I do have some complaints about some of the impatient drivers here, who can’t wait if someone behind them is making a left turn and they feel they have too get ahead of that person. They’ll honk and even go around them on the right side, which is dangerous. I have to make left turns into Rte. 9 daily and I can’t just zip out into oncoming traffic, yet someone waiting behind me honks and even goes around me. He is an accident waiting to happen.

    • and i was nice enough( not like some others) to stop for someone waiting to cross the street in the rain and someone went around me and almost hit the kid!!!! if you obey the laws it wont bother you if we have more law enforcement. its only a good thing!
      thank you officers for putting your life at risk to save ours.

  8. The solution is not to fix the roads. This will cause more cars to breakdown & therefore taking them off the road. The more broken cars off the road, the better.
    2)Hats off to the Lakewood Police Department.
    3)Drive & park like a mentch & Biezrat Hashem, there’ll be no problems.
    4)Kol Tuv to all.

  9. The NJSP has the LEAGAL right to ticket anywhere in the state. Lakewood drivers are deadly- everyone dreads having to enter that horrific town. Parking is illegal, driving on flip phones I mean phones zero regard for School Buses when red lights are flashing. I hope the NJSP nabs all the illegal drivers who live in illegal dorms too. Stop the HITCHHIKING.

  10. if there would be traffic lights there wouldn’t be a problem
    the people would have their time to cross and so to would the cars that need to make a left
    the fact is on a street like the rt 88 no car stops so its hard to make a left turn so you can wait all day till the coast is totally clear but if you slowly inched yourself in when the coming car can still catch sight from you he will slow down and then its easy but most people don’t know how to do basic driving so you can wait behind such a driver five minutes
    if you get stuck behind two such drivers in a trip adds up to another 10 min which is a lot if your on a schedule
    The police force is great but its not solving the problem we need solutions! why when ever there is a major accident at a intersection does a stop sighn go up? why wait first for the accident to happen? and besides why just a stop sign if its a place that has already caused accidents there should be a traffic light or a roundabout!

  11. The Lakewood police work here all day 24 7 they understand the Ebb and Flow of the Town and know when to Ticket there is no need for outsiders to just come in here and go all Rambo and disturb the equilibrium of the Town and give everyone a bad day

  12. To comment number 17: Respectfully & not sarcastically, the roads should not be fixed so that more cars should break down. Getting as many broke cars off the road may improve traffic flow, somewhat
    2)Definitely remove traffic lights & stop signs & speed limit regulations & pavement markings. Let the drivers & pedestrians figure out on their own how to navigate.
    3)I strongly believe these 4 suggestions will foster cooperation between drivers & pedestrians.
    4)As for the driver’s, I thjnk they’ll be more attentive.
    Oh the wonder of it all.
    Kol Tuv. Hashem should protect us all.
