So the news articles never specified, which side of I-80 the crash actually happened, but Exit 45 on the Eastbound side is the exit for South Beverwyck road.

So if it is supposed to be a wrong way crash, is it because of that ramp? I am not surprised if that ramp caused it. It's a short ramp, but not only is it short, it is so damn easy to mistaken it as a highway entrance rather than a exit. I am not surprised someone would go the wrong way on there.

I always feel bad for the people who live on South Beverwyck road, because it is a comfy, boony, peaceful road, and then they have to deal with the fact that there is a highway exit right by them. And my dad always taught me not to live in a give location with easy access to a highway, because robbers can easily flee at high speed (like a robbery that happened in Denville years ago).

lack of investment in passenger rail is the reason why crashes happen.

Well Americans love having their own cars and their own space. Most people don't like public transportation in America and public transportation is ghetto too. Having our own cars means independence.

Uh huh... and I suppose you independently paid for your car and pay for your insurance and car maintenance with your own earned money from a legitimate income source. If so, I’ll shut up.

If not, get over your pampered self. Not everyone has the resources to buy, insure, and maintain a car.

That's true, but it seems like everyone in NJ has a car, otherwise there would be more NJ Transit around. I feel like there are a ton of places in northern NJ that need NJ transit.

You should suppose that I paid for my own makeup with my own earned money from a legitimate income source, cuz i do baby.

No, poor driving is usually what causes accidents. If people simply paid attention to the road so many accidents could be avoided.

NJTransit is terrible and anyone suggesting it as a replacement for highways is not thinking straight. Even if it wasn't run by the worst idiots 40 years of political patronage can get you, it's still basically only good for taking people in bulk in a few straight lines.

The benefit of more NJ Transit users would be less traffic and less idiots on the roads. NJ Transit is terrible I agree.

Whoo hoo, woo hoo, and woo-hoo! You paid for your makeup? Big freakin' deal. Tell me when you have to pay for all of your clothing. I had to start doing that in high school.
