  1. This means 2 things
    1. Be an alert cautious driver
    2. Be an alert cautious pedestrian
    We are dealing with people. Peoples lives. If you value your life take care of yourself in every aspect! Road safety included
    May God watch over us all

  2. I pray for all involved, may they all be ok. So sorry this happen. Having said that people in Lakewood ( walking, driving, riding bikes , white , black, Jewish or others ) NEED TO SLOW DOWN AND REALLY PAY ATTENTION ! Everybody’s in a hurry, no one has respect for one another, PLEASE PEOPLE WE ALL LIVE HERE. BE ALERT AS TRAFFIC IS AT A ABUNDANCE ALL THE TIME. BE WELL AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS. PRAYERS TO THE VICTIMS .

  3. Reflectors save lives!!! Why are people so stubborn and resist wearing them??? Even if you’re walking on the sidewalk most of the way, when you cross a street you are black!!!

  4. Please, wear reflectors! It’s not possible to see those crossing the road until they are literally a foot away-even when driving slowly.
    Hope everyone is ok.
    Safe driving

  5. This is ridiculous. It is so dangerous in Lakewood… There is poor lighting all over and it is impossible to see people walking.

    Add to this, a Yeshiva with a few thousand boys with half its facilities on one side of a state highway and the other half on the other side.. AND POOR LIGHTING THERE TOO!


    The Mosod and community leader must build an overpass (or two), or find another solution OR MOVE!! HELLO… HELLO – It is a SAKANA!!!!

  6. Ipedestrians walk across streets wherever they please. Not by crosswalks and wearing dark clothing. Every time I drive at night here I witness at least 3 people crossing the street but only being able to see them at the last second.
    (And yes, it should be completely illegal to cross the 9 not by a light) the law of allowing the pedestrian have the right of way in regards to crossing the street causes these type of accidents. At night if someone is not wearing a reflector its nearly impossible to see them. It doesn’t help that there is a law that if you see a pedestrian you have to stop because seeing the pedestrian is the first problem.

  7. I am living here for over 36 years and it was always understood that no one would even dream of crossing Route 9 except by a traffic light. Many of us remember the day when a little boy stepped out onto Route 9 and was hit and Nebach became totally disabled physically and mentally and has been confined to a wheelchair for his entire life. He is probably 40 years old today. Rabbosai, please have pity on yourselves and do not put your lives in danger by crossing Route 9. (Many of us even remember the sign on Route 9 near Freehold that said “Route 9, NJ Killer Highway”. And this was before Lakewood was so densely populated)

    • There was another killer highway sign on Route 9 down by Wallach’s egg farm and country store. My mother always warned before driving a car to PAY ATTENTION, NEVER SPEED and be COURTEOUS.

  8. Although Israelis are far from Model Drivers, Israel is much more pro-active about pedestrian safety. Big thoroughfares like Bar-Ilan and Shmuel Hanavi in Yerushalayim (that are not highways and cars are driving much slower than Route 9!), and even some smaller streets with high pedestrian traffic, have barriers down the center. With a gate/guardrail running down the center, no one can cross between lights, even if they want to. Perhaps it’s time to do the same for Route 9, along the populated stretches….
