No, and I'd be great if more people would switch to a carless lifestyle. Granted, I was exaggerating a bit, but I think the city *should* make it more of a pain to drive through downtown in order to deter people from using downtown as a shortcut to the tunnel, and to try to change the bad driving habits around here.

That's a really bad intersection. Actually, there a few really bad intersections on Jersey Avenue but that is one of the worst.

The problem with Jersey and Wayne is that cars speed to catch the light at Columbus and they block the box when the light is red.

Someone posted a few weeks ago about it being against the law to drive through the intersection when a pedestrian is in the crosswalk. The city would make a fortune handing out tickets at that intersection.

This city is strapped for cash and they are bleeding property owners dry with increasing taxes. It makes me mad as hell and frustrated beyond belief that this city doesn't post a cop on these corners to hand out tickets. My parents live in Westchester Co. and in their town there is a cop on the same corner every day writing tickets one after another. The guy just stands there and actually looks in your windsheild to check your registration. The point I'm trying to make is that the locals know to make a complete stop, it's the idiots from out of town that get tickets for speeding through town.

Simple fix, I don't get why the mayor's office doesn't get it.

No pferm. It seems that this city has an unusually high amount of people that live and visit here that just don't know how to drive. Case in point: as we we're driving home last night, some person decided to speed through the stop sign at 7th and Jersey. Had my wife not been as attentive as she was and slammed on the breaks as quickly and hard as she did, we would have been t-boned and my 3-yr old or I or both of us probably would have been seriously injured as the point of impact would have been on the passenger side. The at fault party came to a stop about half way into the intersection, glared at us, and sped off.

It is more than just people parking close to the curb and blocking line of sight. It is more than people just not paying attention. It is more than people speeding. I guess this city and state just has a higher number of people that think they have the right of way regardless, are selfish, and just don't care about anyone else.

I grew up in Brooklyn, and drove all around the NYC, but it seems we didn't have nearly as high an accident rate at intersections as we do in JC. We have just as narrow streets in NYC, we have just as many people parking right up to the corner, but I guess NY'ers just know better and proceed with caution. As bad a reputation as NYers have for driving, NJ drivers in my experience are far worse.

I know there are good people and good drivers in this state, and I don't mean to condemn this entire state and city, but that has just been my experience here.

- Never argue with an idiot. They bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

stop signs need to be approved by the state and it's a major PITA to try and get one... unfortunately. Though I think there should be a few more stop signs along Wayne St.

I'd advise writing to Steven Fulop. Community pressure seems to have helped to get the traffic light at Barrow & Grand turned on a few years ago.

If I were king of Jersey City, there'd be at least a stop sign at every single intersection.

Does anyone know if there have been any community attempts to get a stop sign at that intersection? Any ideas of how to do this? The City of JC's website is a mess.

Thanks!
