Heading north on LBI to get onto rt 72 from the Blvd. I'm always in the left lane and every time the vehicles in front of me go halfway into the right lane. They are so terrified of the curb to the left like it'll jump out in front of them!! I drive a 95 F-150 and I hug the curb and could do it at 40 mph if I had to! I was taught in kindergarten to stay between the lines!! Just a simple fact that idiots that should not be driving... ARE! Sorry I'm not "politically correct", I call it as I see it and don't give the B/S "accidents" happen most people slow down to 25 mph through there, which is okay, do whatever you have to safely .. I love circles, much more efficient than sitting at a light for a few minutes, pretty tough when you have to pay attention to signs and yeilding to the traffic flow! Europe has them "turn abouts" and they know how to drive! Going off of subject here... in Germany they have a 12 point system like we do, but if your ticketed for running a red light or stop sign you get 2 points and you loose your license for one year! They figure if your not disciplined enough to stop at these you should not be driving, they slow down and sometimes stop if they can when the light turns yellow!

It appears from the traffic and lanes that were blocked off that day that the collision was on Central Ave & 8th St, Not Barnegat Ave and definitly not the circle..The Circle is on Long Beach Blvd 8th & 9th St..sorry for being picky..but if your going to write it get the facts straight. And for the drivers!! PAY ATTENTION..this was a wreck because someone was not PAYING ATTENTION...!!! drive with care..
