  1. Glen Ridge Police need to get someone out to Ridgewood School in the morning and direct traffic. Intersection of Ridgewood and Bloomfield, as well as Ridgewood/Belleville. It’s a joke right now, solid gridlock. Saw a GR police car tooling around, oblivious to it, and it’s a dangerous mess due to blocked streets. Please do something

  2. ^^^ mrx, I hear you, and agree it’s a mess. We have the same issue in Bloomfield at the bottom of Belleville at Broad Street. Complete head on gridlock for the past two mornings around the high school. Police finally showed up this morning for a while.

    Ever read the Seuss story about The Zax? We had two cars on our street, a two way street but down to one lane with the snow, and they couldn’t get around each other and they both just sat there, waiting for the other to move, for ten minutes.
