Ridgewood NJ, New bank at the site of a former gas station on Godwin just up from Garber square and the Ridgewood train station is starting to look like an accident waiting to happen.
In a recent email a reader pointed out; “How will people drivers try to make a left into their from town side approach Its entrance looks to be right next to the whole foods exit only driveway ..add in a Ped crosswalk right there and you have a problem, Houston. So much for Village planning. A no left turn from town might solve it but the drive thru bank will likely not stand for that, most days traffic comes from town. I’m sure the drive up is a selling point. No problem from midland park side if town nor soft exit towards the train side if people let them merge into the deadman’s curve.”
