Defensive Driving 101

News Staff's picture

The West Essex Tribune office is located on a busy section of South Livingston Avenue. We are right next door to ShopRite, and as a result, traffic can back up around here from time to time. Some who are unfamiliar with the area’s layout also abruptly stop and turn into our parking lot by mistake, thinking it is the grocery store’s lot. At least once or twice a day we hear a flurry of horns honking, sometimes accompanied by the unfortunate crunching of metal and plastic.

It’s such a shame, because almost all of these incidents could be avoided if there were signaling devices installed on these vehicles to alert other drivers of impending turns. If only something like that existed...

I am talking, of course, about the humble blinker.
