Dangerous Roadway Accident
If you’re a New Jersey resident, you remember the weather we had at the start of 2018. How could anyone forget? Early January saw wind gusts of more than 70 miles per hour and more than a foot of snow. Many New Jersey schools opened two hours later than normal during the worst of the storm. These harsh conditions were caused by a rapid plunge in barometric pressure, called a bombogenesis or “bomb cyclone” by weather forecasters. Read the rest »
This summer, a car was hit by a flying tire while traveling southbound near Exit 10 on the New Jersey Turnpike. The car’s passenger sustained injuries for which she was taken to Robert Wood Johnson in New Brunswick.
The cause of this “flying tire” wasn’t immediately made clear, but this accident has left many people wondering if tires are going to start flying at their own heads. Read the rest »
The morning of February 20, 2014 was treacherous for New Jersey motorists. According to a news report in the Asbury Park Press, there were 124 car accidents in New Jersey that morning in addition to 140 distress calls from motorists. Officials say that many of the accidents and distress calls were related to the icy conditions. There were accidents along the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike, and Interstates, 78, 80, 195, 287, and 295. None of the reported accidents resulted in serious injuries.
Officials say that black ice made highway on- and off-ramps particularly dangerous. Black ice is a layer of ice that is so thin that drivers can hardly detect it. New Jersey drivers should expect more black ice this season as the temperatures continue to warm up and then cool down causing the snow and ice to melt briefly only to refreeze. Read the rest »
Local residents are filing an online petition asking New Jersey officials to install a marked crosswalk in Lambertville, which they say is hazardous for bicyclists and pedestrians. According to The Hunterdon Democrat, residents of Lambertville want a crosswalk where the Delaware and Raritan Canal towpath intersects Bridge Street. The petition points out that other river towns with a towpath have crosswalks and yield-to-pedestrian signs, but Lambertville does not.
Bridge Street is part of Route 179, which makes the location the state’s responsibility. This area is not under the city’s jurisdiction. In response to the request, officials will have to review the history of pedestrian and bicycle accidents at that location to determine if it is in everyone’s best interest to move forward with the request.
