What Can Make Garretson Road Safer?
The debate is on after a teen was hit by a car Thursday.
A 14-year-old student was hit by a 17-year-old driver on Thursday as she walked in the crosswalk on Garretson Road from the Bridgewater YMCA to the Bridgewater-Raritan High School—and discussions have continued since then about the safety of the road.
Parents have expressed concerns about the lack of a crossing guard or police officer in the area of the high school before and after school each day. They have said they believe having someone directing the traffic would keep kids safer as they cross the street.
The Bridgewater Township Police Department has said it is planning to begin looking into studies to determine what can be done to make the area safer for students.
But, Bridgewater, we want to know what you think. Take our poll and let us know if you think a crossing guard or police officer is the best solution, or if there might be something else that can be done to ensure safety of our students.
And let us know what you think in the comments below.
