Make our neighborhood safer and protect our families

We the residents and motorists utilizing the Medford roads are requesting that a safer alternative be put into place at Old Medford Avenue and Expressway Drive North and South. This intersection is a dangerous hazard to those who enter it from Old Medford Avenue.  There is a blind spot when entering and exiting from under the bridge.  The cars coming from Expressway Drive North and Expressway Drive South are passing the red lights at a high rate of speed then crashing into the motorists coming from Old Medford Avenue.  We are requesting that a mirror or any safer measure be put into place so that motorists from Old Medford Avenue can see upcoming traffic before approaching the traffic lights to give them a chance to stop or slow down before incurring a crash. Records will show accidents at this location including multiple deaths.  Our school buses enter through this intersection daily transporting our children to and from school.  This road is also the main road to the Town of Brookhaven.  Many of us take this road to get onto major highways and travel to shopping areas.  This roads diverts traffic from overflowing from North Ocean Avenue and Route 112.   Insersection
