The driver was issued a summons for failure to yield to a pedestrian in the crosswalk, Ward said.

Why would the driver only be given a summons for failure to yield? If there is reckless driving and bodily injury results, that meets the NJ criteria for vehicular assault.

Could it be that you are the reason for the accidents? I dont think flashing cars is a good idea. Tho I am not sure who was driving those cars, because if you flashed me I would stop.

Too many people,drivers and pedestrians think they are sooo important that others must stop for them. Everyone is in a hurry. Well get up earlier.

Same goes for speeding in Fair Lawn. Especially you mini van Moms who are doing 50 in a 25 mph zone on the phone with 5 kids in the van. I see this almost every day when school is open. I told one mom whom my kid plays with that she is NOT to let my kid in her car.

Reckless driving is with the intent on harming.
