I found it quite disturbing that such a video was posted in the open, especially in front of family and friends. “WATCH: Your friend getting killed”

No words.

I was going to revive this thread when I saw the video but I didn't want to draw more attention to the video while it was still up. Truly disgusting.

I contacted one of the sites, and they responded that they’re taking it down
That's impressive that they were open to hearing your concern and correcting it. Many of them would completely ignore you- they'll do whatever it takes to get some clicks.

That the infrastructure is terrible and requires dangerous driving maneuvers is true. That it leads to aggressive driving even in normal driving situations is true, too. However, we can work to reduce the aggressive and mindless driving in other situations even if we can't fix the infrastructure just yet.
I don't think one really leads to the other. I drive pretty aggressively in the city but I'll calm down the second I am out of the clusters caused by dumb and selfish drivers.

Driving aggressively in the city is a completely different animal than aggressive Lakewood driving. In the city practically every driver has high situational awareness, they know what’s going on all around them at all times. Getting cutoff is never a surprise,  and overall it’s a controlled chaos situation. Lakewood, OTOH…

New Jersey 101.5 FM: The deadliest intersection in the country is in New Jersey.
https://nj1015.com/the-deadliest-intersection-in-the-country-is-in-new-jersey/

- Intersection on Route 70 and Massachusets onbthe Toms River Lakewood border was rated  as one of the deadliest intersections in the country, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Board. Based on data of seven or more deaths between 2000 and 2019. But Toms River PD say they made changes by implemented a prohibited red turn arrow, which would eliminate the left turns during oncoming traffic and also added clearance time  So, one of the vehicle started its left-hand turn at the end of the yellow arrow, it would have time to complete the turn and get out of the intersection prior to oncoming traffic approaching."Since the changes, there have been only 10 minor accidents and no injuries reported at Route 70 & Massachusetts in Toms River.

Seems like the Asbury Park Press finally hired a new Lakewood reporter.

I'm going to be blunt.

The @AsburyParkPress coverage of Jackson's Jewish community recently @byMikeDavis sickens me.

The APP was once replete with bigotry in their coverage of the Jewish community, but in the last few years, they have completely changed course, to their credit.
In the last months, however, @byMikeDavis has been peddling a narrative of unabashed bigotry. Yes, he is a very talented reporter, and- from what I've heard - an upstanding human being, but his reporting indicates that he harbors an underlying animus towards the Jewish community.
The subtlety of those sentiments are a testament to his talent. But the direction and focus of his articles display it prominently.

Take today's piece.

"Parking worries dominate Jackson hearing on synagogue plan"

It's about a shul application that may lack parking.
That's a pretty standard issue. The Board can chose to approve it, or ask them to add parking and come back. Everyday business in land-use boards across the state. Newsworthy?

Yes, because it's a headline that reinforces a narrative the Jews don't care about neighbors.
Search "Jackson" on APP's homepage. Go ahead and do it. The last four stories - all @byMikeDavis - are about Jewish related construction in Jackson Township.

Yes, the @AsburyParkPress can stand behind the veil of "that's news," but the obsession with the narrative is undeniable.
If it would be another ethnic group flourishing in a township, there would be positive coverage heralding the diversity. But the Jewish community is an allowed target. Perhaps even an encouraged target.

And when someone threatens to "bash heads" in Lakewood, we wonder why.
I would not be surprised if @byMikeDavis will come on Twitter and respond with a string of answers or excuses. But the pattern is clear, and no words can mask it.

Actions (in this case, articles) speak louder than words (tweets).

It's just a silly way to try to deflect the criticism and clear his conscience.

Don't publicly disseminate anti-Semitism and then come say "give me suggestions" when you are called out for it.

You're a reporter. Don't be a mouthpiece for the few bigoted losers who pander to you.
