Reader says , “It blocks the clear site of the entrance into Ridgewood as you are driving down the highway “

NO!! it’s not the gas station that is the problem, James, it is the building, being constructed on the same lot of the gas station. It blocks the clear site of the entrance into Ridgewood as you are driving down the highway, RT 17. It is dangerous. You no longer can see clearly what is going on with cars exiting that entrance. Cars may crash into you exiting the wrong lane. Also, the gas station lot will be too crowded to safely move your car once you have gotten gas. Damn’t . The new Dunkin Donuts makes it dangerous for anyway going into that lot. I am talkin about the entrance into Ridgewood into Franklin Tpke after a Park and Ride where they are constructing a huge drive-in Dunkin Donuts. Read Friday’s Ridgewood News. First it was going to be a seven -eleven. NO matter what it is the building blinds the site of drivers who want to enter into Ridgewood. The town approved that construction because they do not care about the safety of people. Only about money.

For years ,since 1978 when I moved here, there was only a gas station there. Then it was not crowded and safe. Now on the highway it is a death trap to enter into Ridgewood because you are blinded by the building and getting gas will be dangerous because too crowded with Dunkin drivers. The lot of the SHell station was small to begin with.
