  1. its a terribly dangerous intesection with cars parked all the way till the corner making it impossible to see if there are any cars coming.
    i avoid it all the time. way too many accidents happen there.

  2. #2
    its a new method that i came up with for the police to investigate an accident.
    to reconstruct it with 2 other vehicles, so the police suv and the ems car was best choice to reconstruct the pickup truck and the little car

  3. dont know who told you it was head on but you can clearly see that the damage to the pick up is in the front and the damage to car is on the passanger side so obviosly it was a broudsided accident meaning one car jumpded the stop sign
    on a side note that corner is a very dark corner with people always crossing time to get some more lights put up

  4. It is a very dangeous corner. With many accidents happening. It was brought to the attention of the township but they had no concern for the safety of the neighborhood their only concern was that more and more townhouses be built.

  5. this is a regular problem in lakewood where you can’t see vehicles traveling in the opposite direction because of the congested parking on the streets. the township should try and increase the parking distance from an intersection so we can see.

  6. Yes this a poorly lit intersection. And the parking is horrible. But what is there to do? If you read back in the many postings on the stories throughout the the Scoop’s reporting history, you will find that when the police enforce parking issues, they are bashed openly.
    You cannot have it both ways.
    As for clearly disregarding a stop sign…absolutely no excuse. The driver is lucky her passenger(s) weren’t killed.

  7. It is illegal to park within 50 feet of a STOP sign. Anyone who parks in such a manner is putting drivers, and pedestrians in dangerous situations. Before parking illegally, decide whether or not you can handle the responsibility of possibly causing injury or death.

  8. that corner along with seventh is a very dangrous intersection. just putting 2 stop signs along monmouth would help. cars go way too fast down monmouth, lexington, due to no stop signs .

  9. Besides this accident, what about all of the people that are passing cars on a double line – any place where there is a double line, you will see cars racing to pass – ILLEGALLY. What is going to be done about that? How many mishaps and deaths do we have to see and hear about until this matter is taken care of.
