  1. Discourage more vehicles in CBD by NOT having a garage PERIOD. Discourage pollution and pedestrian acciidents. THis council pukes and I voted for SEDON and KNUDSEN only because the others were worse. no one good ran.

  2. Will the police be giving tickets to speeders including NJIT buses?

  3. Avoid Jeanne Johnson and her lame projects at all costs

  4. Maybe we can promote to our kids that they need to look both ways before walking into our street crosswalk, and pick your head up instead of looking down at their cell phone. Because I don’t know who’s teaching them this but it really is amazing how Individuals can just walk in the street without looking and looking at their cell phone to the New York City you get ran over, this bullshit came from LA. Right away they want to blame the drivers wake up.

  5. I prefer the “Drive like your kids live here” signs better but anything that could possibly slow drivers would be a great help. Even more important is what 1:02 said. I am so tired of both adults and children using their phones and never once looking up. They just assume that someone will see them in time to stop when they walk directly into the street without looking. Could our parking meter attendants ticket those people if they see them while making their rounds?

  6. “I prefer the “Drive like your kids live here” signs better…”
    That must mean that I can drive at any speed, since my kids are smart enough to look both ways and stay out of the street and respect the power of cars, so the speed limit could be 25, 50 or 100 and my kids would be safe.
    I prefer the sign – “teach your kids to be self-responsible and not victims”.

  7. I have those “Drive Like You Kids Live Here Signs.” How many grammar errors can you jam onto a single sign?
