My wife and I had a terrible jolt as we were driving at a lower-than-legal speed in a nearby town on a recent dark and rainy night. We suddenly bolted as high as our seatbelts would allow as the car went over an invisible protruding curb.
The tire was destroyed and that wasn’t the end. Replacing the destroyed wheel will cost over $200. Labor is expensive, of course.
It has taken hours of my time.
We do NOT want any bump-outs on Grove Street and Elm Street, and preferably not elsewhere in Montclair. They are too dangerous even if we have a light next to each one — which is expensive too. Rain and dense fog happen. Do we want to subject Montclair residents and visitors to needless hazards?
