Now that it's almost graduation time and knowing that there will be new young drivers on the road, we need to stress safe driving to our children. On the stretch of road in Bridgeton Township Pa. which is Brigeton Hill Rd. (Marienstein Rd.) there have been many auto accidents including roll overs, fatal crashes and pedestrian incidents. I frequently see many drivers speeding on this stretch of road. This particular road has many hazards, those being sharp curves, blind spots, deer, school bus stops, no shoulder, and children walking and biking in the road. If you are speeding on this road you are asking for trouble. PLEASE talk to your teens about these hazards. As a member of the local fire department I see first hand the results of carelessness. Let's all have a safe summer vacation.

I witnessed an accident yesterday when a speeding car driven by three teens,(all out on parole!)hit a 10 year old boy head on. The boy was on his way home from a ball game at the Bridgeton Hill field. I just pray to God that he is okay. They had to medivac him out to the hosiptal.

Yes this is one of the reasons why I wrote the article as my husband and I were both at the accident with the fire company. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and victim. I am by no means a "perfect" driver, but it never ceases to amaze me the things I see on the road every day in our local neighborhoods. Failure to stop at stop signs,failure to "yield" (does anyone know what that means?) passing in no passing zones, driving in the wrong lane of traffic, tailgating and speeding not to mention others. Perhaps I grew up in different times but I was taught to be a responsible driver. There is no where worth going in a hurry that is that important to take or destroy a life on the way. Being late to an appointment or a job is a "fixable" error. Having to go to bed at night knowing that you were responsible for an injury or death is something that I myself couldn't live with. Please talk to your teens about the consequences of unsafe driving, not just on this particular stretch of road but every time they get behind the wheel.

This is still a major problem, and there's an accident on this road, and Marienstein almost every weekend. This is a residential road, but the way people drive, and with the amount of traffic, youd think it was a highway.

There is a speed limit on the road, but everyone ignores it. Part of the problem is a lack of police presence. Its a state road, so the residents have to rely on the State Police. Hopefully when PENDOT finishes the route 32 construction, and the detour of 611 is gone, things will improve.

Another motorcycle accident Saturday Oct. 4th around 1:30 pm. Guy slid off the road on Bridgeton hill road right on the corner before you start to go down the hill toward route 32. His bike was a mess, and he was on his cell phone, I doubt if he was calling the State Police. Slow the **** down, PLEASE..!
