Re: Taqueria

Food is outstanding. Owner has an attitude. All of us laugh at that, but the food is so good, we put up with it, like the soup nazi on Seinfeld.

Re: Safety, our children, stop signs and speeding downtown


Tell me what your conversation has to do with not stopping at stop signs and speeding down streets?

I agree with you that I see a lot of people crossing when the lights, that is lights, not stop signs, allow the traffic to go past you and a pedestrian must wait.

What I am talking about is a stop sign, which , I believe is a constant red to drivers, indicating stop, that is stop at the stop sign, and let people pass across to the other side of the street.

My children are not in strollers now, but i do know what you mean by putting children strollers out there when traffic is coming. It is totally out of the question to do so at green lights and in the middle of streets. But don't forget the dog people and people with carts, or laundry, I have seen them stick it out there for traffic to stop. Dog people give you that face as well.

Speed bumps slow traffic which enables better decision making by both parties. Right now cars are turning the corner on Jersey and 7th and hitting the gas to get to the corner of Erie and 7th as quickly as possible. They are hitting the break a couple of houses from the corner. The speed has to go from 40-0 in a second. Its scary. Let me throw ice, rain, snow, and your more than occasional drunk driver on a Friday or Saturday night into the mix, as well as a street lamp on th corner which hasn't been lit since 2005, another thing the city should know, and someone should fix, and you have a bad situation.

I peek out out with my children on the sidewalk and I see a car that is moving above the speed limit, and coming to the corner at a rapid pace. then they suddenly slow down, and stop, and I start to walk across the street and they act like I just got there and start to move across the stop sign to look down Erie for more speeding cars. Its a nightmare!

Simply- slower driving promotes a less dangerous opportunity for both driver and pedestrians at a stop sign. Speed bumps help this = less kids, dogs, laundry baskets get run over.

Safety, our children, stop signs and speeding downtown

This is my first post. I am a lifetime Jersey City resident, and I live on 7th and Erie. I have two children, 3 and 5, and there are 10-12 children on my block, between Erie and Jersey, under age 8. I have lived here since 2000. I am completely fed up with the lack of anyone in government concerned with the speed of cars on our streets, the fact that we almost get hit or have cars come at us at high speeds,and blowing through stop signs. It is beyond ridiculous. I am willing to do anything possible, and need concerned citizens help to organize a group to make our govt officials aware in a big way that this is unacceptable. Enough is enough, we almost got hit this morning. I have contacted some officials, but it seems like they are giving no effort to rectify this. It is time we step up before someone gets killed. Speed bumps, camera's anything, please. I even asked for a cop on the corner, to no avail. I can't beleive that no one is concerned in our local govt about this. It is pathetic.
