  1. The people who come flying into town via Ridgewood avenue, come from places like East Orange and Newark. While literally just next door, they are worlds away in terms of social norms and driving patterns. How many times I have seen Nannies crossing with little children, and the drivers from “down the hill” just accelerate with the “beats blasting”. Anyone who has ever been going about their local, daily business of dropping kids off at games and school in the area, knows what it is like to get someone behind them on Ridgewood Avenue who is impatiently riding their bumper and trying to pass on the right (via the bike lane) just to speed back down to the Oranges. They run through and disrupt 4 way stops and would not understand the concept of a pedestrian crosswalk if you took the time to educate them on the same. They use our neighborhood streets as back routes to their own communities while contemptuously dumping their Chinese Food styrofoam and McDonalds leftovers in our yards and streets.
