I THINK THAT SOMEONE REALLY NEEDS TO LOOK AT THIS AREA... I HAVE DRIVEN BY THERE AND THE SPEEDING IS UNBELIVEABLE. HOW MANY DEATHS IS IT GONNA TAKE BEFORE SOMEONE DOES SOMETHING....I DONT TAKE THE THRUWAY FOR THAT REASON. TRUCKS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN THAT AREA... ISNT THERE A TRUCK ROUTE FOR THAT AREA? THE TIMES I HAVE DRIVEN ON THE TRUWAY, EVERYBODY IS DOING A LEAST 70 MILES PER HR. WHAT ABOUT LIGHTS? I DONT WHAT THE ANSWER IS BUT SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE....

Well, it really doesn't seem like speeding is the problem. In fact, I don't think that ANY of the fatal accidents this year were due to speeding...They have mostly been caused by truckers falling asleep or random cases of people not paying attention. I don't know what the answer is either, except to avoid the road, which is what I try to do.

I AGREE, JUST TO AVOID IT WOULD BE BETTER.. BUT I LIVE NEAR THERE AND COMING FROM BKLYN 3 YRS AGO.. I SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE SPEED.. BOTTOM LINE PEOPL NEED TO BE CAREFUL WHEN DRIVING THRU THERE. I LIVE NEAR EXIT 15A AND THE MERGING OF TRAFFIC IS VERY DANGEROUS... YOU HAVE TWO LANES MERGING ON AND ONE MERGING OFF. ITS RUFF.....

This article isn't accurate. No truck involved. And do u watch how people drive around semi's? They take more blame for accidents the average driver starts as they drive away oblivious to what they just caused. We aren't that important, but we are selfish thoughtless state and nation that can't handle the simple truths about how we live. Drive safe NY it starts with u!

i live in monroe and drive to paramus NJ everyday
and let me tell you i do not take the thruway, its like driving in a speedtrack, like a roadway to hell, everybody seems to be late to work and since there is no police present they all do 70 to 90 mph.
