  1. Will one of our elected officials please take an interest in this section of road and Route 4 Northbound to Route 258. Too many accidents, deaths and traffic nightmares to count!

  2. To many lives lost at this intersection something needs to be done. They speed on Rte 4 like it’s no tomorrow and people are not judging their speed thinking they can crossover. How many more lives need to be taken, just put up the traffic lights!!!

  3. Turning off Rt 4 to a side road will always be dangerous as long as people are running 67 to 70 mph on Rt 4.
