CLARK, NJ- Drivers making a right turn on red onto Raritan Road as they exit Shoprite Way may soon find themselves with a ticket in hand for the ride home. Newly installed signs at the light indicate an end has come to the practice of freely making a right turn after a stop at this location.
During a recent Clark Town Council Meeting an ordinance was introduced to make the change in traffic flow. Clark Business Administrator John Laezza spoke about the decision.
“We’ve had three serious accidents and they were all right turns on red, because they (drivers) look to the left and never see people walking right in front of them on the right,” said Laezza. “So we are putting this in to avoid that going forward.”
Signs are positioned on the curb, next to the right lane prior to the light at Raritan Road as well as across the road facing cars exiting Shoprite Way.
