    1. Terrible.

      What is being done to crack down on such dangerous drivers and keep people safe?

      A frum guy on a bicycle, Chaim Miller z”l, Hy”d, was killed by a speeding car last Sept. 1 at Ocean Parkway and Quentin road. The police were supposedly investigating. But witnesses saw the car speeding and the windshield showed what happened. Photos and other evidence corroborated it as well. How long are they investigating? For the next twenty years?

      I know of other cases where frum people were seriously injured.

      What are our representatives doing to protect us?

      Senator Felder blocks speed cameras so cars can speed without worrying too much? What a disgrace!

      Safety measures need to be increased, not decreased.
