(You’re) Damned if You Do And Damned if You Don’t ….Making Right Turn in Paramus

IMG 5311

by Frank Geraghty

Paramus NJ, The DOT has a big problem on Front Road & Midland Avenue in Paramus that is why a rare warning sign has been placed on From Road at Midland Avenue before traffic signals, “Right Turn Must Yield To Pedestrians”.

Motorists making a right on red especially during rush hour are forced to move fast to avoid getting hit by fast moving horn blowing vehicles coming from under the Garden State Parkway overpass. See enclosed photos taken on a quiet Sunday of a white car forced to abruptly stop on crosswalk as a speeding black car passes. Scared drivers who would prefer not to make a right on red are forced to make a right turn by horn blowing motorists from behind.

More traffic means more risk, and it’s a sad fact that 1.35 million people die in traffic accidents each year.

Ridgewood's Glenwood Road to become one way street east of Upper Boulevard

Ridgewood NJ, according to Boyd Loving in a Facebook post, ” It’s official. Barring approval of an estimated $4 million improvement project to widen Glenwood Road, that street will become one-way eastbound (vehicular traffic from Ridgewood to Ho-Ho-Kus only) within the next 6-12 months. The one-way change/designation for vehicles is being mandated by the NJDOT in conjunction with their plans to upgrade the NJ Transit grade level rail crossing at the bottom of the hill. Village and Borough of Ho-Ho-Kus elected officials fought NJDOT on the issue, but NJDOT is refusing to budge citing numerous safety hazards associated with the continuation of two-way vehicular traffic at the grade level rail crossing.”
