I live just outside of West milford on Rt-19 & I'm surprised that this hasn't happened here ,, I've called the County & State police to try and get them to patrol this area in the mornings & afternoons for almost 2 years & they never do ,, these people fly up & down Rt-19 all the time ,, honestly I don't think it matters to them what happens on the Southern part of Harrison County ,, my son & I stand across the street to wait on his bus & we've almost been hit by speeding cars a few times & I've called the Harrison County Headquarters & still nothing is done ,, I would love to see my comment get some attention ,, Thank You !!!!
