The number of pedestrians struck in Lakewood Township in December increased considerably from November.

As previously reported here on FAA News, back in May 2023, Mayor Coles had no answer to Central Avenue resident Avi Gordon who questioned why traffic safety isn't taken into consideration as more and more construction is approved.

With the monthly increase of pedestrians struck, I can't imagine how the Zoning or Planning Boards approve any more new houses right next to highways?

A pedestrian who is struck has almost no chance of surviving the impact of the car on their body.

Do these boards believe building houses for kids on highways reduces pedestrians getting struck or C'v more victims in Lakewood?

Yom HaDin comes for everyone, careful what is allowed to be put next to highways, you will have to answer for this!

There are no fake excuses accepted up there, please don't fool yourselves,
