  1. What’s going on. Everyday there’s another issue on Rt. 17.

  2. state police handle it it’s a state highway, It’s ridiculous how many times Ridgewood police goes out to route 17 And the handle situations every time. In the state police just drove by and look and smile.

  3. Maybe, if we all drove responsively we would not have have so, many issues on our roadways! It takes us all doing the right thing by operating motor vehicles in safe manner to make the difference
