  1. That crosswalk could not be any more painted and visible, and yet someone still managed to hit her. I hope to learn more about the driver and the summons he receives.

  2. I have been saying this for months that this was coming and MORE WILL COME until the new pedestrian law is revised as well as communicated to the public. This is the exact example of “you can be right, but DEAD right” or be wrong-wich would you prefer?

    I am an EMT and even I still have no clear definitive explanation of this law. When does the pedestrian have the right of way and when does the car? Would you walk right into oncoming traffic from both directions, close your eyes and say “I’m right and they have to yield to me as I have the right of way” ??!!

    Do you know how many times I have to wait to cross a street AT a pedestrian walk as the cars will not stop? For the ones that do I commend you, but I will still wait to fully cross as cars will USUALLY-not often- swerve around and continue on.
    I commend Chief Lawson for his efforts in educating the public in regard to this law. However, until the specifics are clearly written, understood, and practiced by the public, I will not put my life or my loved ones’ lives in jeapordy of the driver rushing to his/her’s destination.

  3. Consequences of a dumb law
    just throw all caution to the wind and cross
    Almost as smart as kailys law with those stupid stickers for teen drivers like that will keep anything from happening

  4. The real problem is these crosswalks!
    Let’s get real.
    On Clifton or Forest, to wait for pedestrians means waiting an hour. It’s a fact.
    There are people constantly crossing.
    These crosswalks can not be placed in busy areas. It’s impossible not to break the law.
    Someone with common sense has to point this out already!!!

  5. I am so tired of people making excuses. Its not up to you to decide if a certain law agrees with you or not. There is no reason why anyone should be going more than 25mph in downtown on clifton ave. This gives plenty of time to stop for a pedestrian in the crosswalk.The law is the law. You cant just run over people and say that you dont agree with the law.

  6. To any 8:37 –
    You miss the point.
    Obviously, it’s the law. But how about putting crosswalks on a highway, would you do that too?
    Do you understand that I live on Forest Avenue and yesterday I watched – yes, watched – how for more than 45 minutes straight (!!!!!!) pedestrians were trying to cross Forest Avenue.
    Stand there and see for yourself!
    It forces people to either break the law or wait an hour – literally – to continue driving.
    I mentioned this to a crossing guard and he agreed it was absolutely ridiculous, but mumbled something like “the people in charge are so out of touch with what is really going on”.

  7. there should be no reason y there is no stop sign or traffic light for nine blocks on forest avenue you r giving the drivers the ability to speed and giving the ped no way of crossing to ease the traffic and slow down the cars they should put a traffic light so people have a chance to cross safetly (hopefully) and also giving the cars a chance to go with out worrying if someone is going to cross without looking

  8. Make taffic lights on every block on busiest roads like in NYC. We are becoming a metropolis already. Enough trying to avoid the inevitable.

  9. why would you walk out into trafic even though you have the right away???? like another post said Dead right
    you need to be aware of your surroundings and not just asume someone is going to stop.

  10. this law works in Europe. you have to stick you foot into the street and the car is required to stop. if cars will be ticketed for not allowing a pedestrian to stop as for a red light, this would work here too, it’s a matter of getting used to it.

  11. How about the kid the that got hit in front of lakewood high school going to his bus. The person who it him and sent the kid flying decided not to stop and was then hit by another bus that stopped him. No word on condition of child.

  12. I lived in Lakewood for many years, but no long live in the town. However, I do work in the town and it is impossible to get anywhere within a reasonable amount of time. From my old house on Kennedy Blvd to my place of business I only had 1 light. Now I must encounter 5 lights! Not to mention the buses stopping, random hitchikers, people that choose to walk on the street rather than the sidewalk. And then one has to worry about cars that do not stop at stop signs, pull out without looking etc.

    I was ABSOLUTELY thrilled to move out of Lakewood for a number of reasons, but dealing with the traffic on a daily basis is one of the main reasons! My blood pressure had decreased!!!

    The pedestian law in theory is important, yet not practical. I ALWAYS stop to allow the herds of people walking on Clifton. Between the traffic lights, double parked delivery trucks, cars darting in and out of traffic. Etc. However, I have a problem with the people who see me coming, at a slow speed…and DART out and they are not even in the crosswalk!!!!

  13. I understand that people need to cross the street safely. But how often do people cross in the middle of the street not caring if cars are coming. Having lived in NYC, I know to cross at a corner where there is a light. In Lakewood people cross the street where ever they want to and expect cars to stop for them! Driving in Lakewood is like being part of a bad “Drivers Ed Movie”

  14. to:right of way to pedestrians says good idea then the next thing to come up is why are the cops wasting time giving out tickets when there is real crime out there this is a lose – lose problem
