Our yom tov was especially inspiring. The chazzan davened so beautifully, it peirced my core and gave me the shivers. Besides for that, our fridge broke down on Thursday and most of our refridgerated food spoiled. Boruch hashem, we went to my in laws for the rest of yom tov and everything worked out. Gmar chasima tova!

September 8, 2013 10:35 am

Just btw, for all those calling for speed bumps – speed bumps are not allowed when there are so many cars driving on the street. They can only go on side streets. Not possible for EP.

September 8, 2013 5:30 am

Speed bumps on a thoroughfare is not practical
What is needed are cement walls at the curb to protect [pedestrians or even better a walking bridge over EP
In the meantime, what I always do when waiting for the light on Eastern Parkway- IS WAIT BEHIND THE POLE SO that a out on control car will hit the pole rather than a person

I am so impressed with the achdus and sensitivity of Klal Yisroel. Joining together as one to make up the entire Sehillim. Out of all the acts of good deeds and kindness that I’ve seen the world do, this one beats it all. It inspires me to the core. I a so proud to have such inspiring brothers and sisters, dedicated to the wellbeing of each other. Mazl Tuv.

September 8, 2013 1:04 am

All you people attacking #18 when the fact is, as a driver myself it is the most ridiculous suggestion to put a speed bump on a major thorough fare like Eastern Parkway, what is needed is a signal light for the turning lane, for one. and possibly four foot poles around the corners of that intersection so that if a car did jump the curb these poles would take the brunt of it and stop the car. A turning signal light was put up on Brooklyn and Eastern Parkway as well as on Empire Blvd and Troy. Two corners which… Read more »

September 8, 2013 1:04 am

What of someone wants to request a speed bump on a side street? Say, there is a major hill in the moddle of the block and you can’t see cars coming when you are at the corner. The cars need to be slowed down. Info please.

September 8, 2013 12:38 am

your logic defies all the basic rules of common sense. Um… maybe next time you’ll realize that the Fire depertment wont stop all their work because a speed bump is in middle of the road. The point of a speed bump is to slow down the traffic, therefore reducing the amount of accidents. (hopefully there wont be a next time…)

to #18: if there is an emergency, one speed bump isnt going to stop the firemen from racing over to the scene. think…

speed bumps?
September 8, 2013 12:14 am

I’m not getting the suggestion of speed bumps, this is quite a tragedy but does it make sense to put a bump on a major road like Eastern parkway? From the guys description a car ran a red light, would a speed bump stop someone from running a red light?!

I noticed that they got rid of the right lane on EP I think is a useless waste of space by bloomberg but if they did it for safety reasons perhaps they have a point.

September 8, 2013 12:14 am

No # 18 they want to slow down drivers that cause accidents so emergency personnel will not be needed in the first place (really brilliant logic # 18 btw that was sarcasm.

stop it!!
September 8, 2013 12:07 am

stop blaming everyone and say tihilim!

Thank G-d the emergency personnel made it to the scene of the accident very quickly, do you want to slow them down by putting speed bumps?

What's the message?
September 7, 2013 11:17 pm

A few weeks ago, a tourist from England had to have her legs amputated when a car jumped a curb in Manhattan.
Now this.

Traffic division
September 7, 2013 9:53 pm

The traffic division is too busy giving out tickets!!!

Where is the Green Arrow Light
September 7, 2013 9:43 pm

Drivers on Eastern Parkway know that all the intersections have green arrow lights that stop oncoming traffic and prevent such accidents. Davka Kingston has no arrow light. Where are the community leaders and our representatives on the community board? People have to lose limbs and blood for something to get done!

September 7, 2013 9:42 pm

One name is Ita Efrat bas Aliza Rivka, around 20-21 yrs old
