Empire and Troy, Still the most dangerous intersection in CH

Last night at around 12:30 there was a collision between two cars, a car service and a Hyundai, what appears to have happened was on car was traveling down Empire and the other up Troy and collided at the center of the intersection. There were no serious injuries reported and passengers from the car service were transported to a local hospital. There were no Yidden involved.

Last week there was another incident where a Jewish child was struck by a car there, B”H the injuries weren’t serious. Parents and drivers please pay more attention, in the past week we nearly had a tragedy L”A with the child that got trapped in a gate [1] and this intersection had the most accidents throughout Crown Heights.

to "Tickets for Jews" next time read the article more carefull "There were no Yidden involved" so more tickets to shvartzas would be more appropriate.

I think you mean the opposite – assuming you are not being sarcastic.

If more tickets were served upon those who are committing more serious offenses (many of whom are not from CH, Jewish or otherwise, and a preponderance of whom seem to be livery drivers) as opposed to ticketing Jewish drivers from the neighborhood for more minor offences, the neighborhood would be safer for traffic as well as in all other respects.

#11 Comment By Moishy Goldstein On August 28, 2006 @ 4:46 pm

It appears that "Tickets for Jews" might not indeed be Jewish, and just bluntly let out a comment, and this is the attention he gets – 9 comments?!

Please excuse my hypocrisy.

Ohhh Come on,
I am Jewish; Yes, I was trying to be a little sarcastic.

I was just trying to say what Itzik_s wrote above, just in fewer words, (maybe it was a little black).

I thought just maybe, maybe, people would get it.
I was just trying to say all that you said back in your replies.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
(Im really Trying to figure out, am I the only one going the wrong way down the Highway or is everybody else going the wrong way).

#19 Comment By BrookAve On August 29, 2006 @ 7:46 pm

A bit of advice. Wait at least three seconds before crossing in this town. You must not go on green in CH. I have gotten used to the sound of honking. I love it.
