Keep Traffic Flowing Don’t Block the Box
A reminder to all motorists: “Don’t Block the Box” formed by the grid of white painted lines in the roadway. There are 3 West Orange locations:
- Mt. Pleasant Ave. east at the Town Hall Driveway
- Pleasant Valley Way north by Hooper Ave.
- Intersection of Prospect Ave and Boland Drive.
Drivers should avoid entering the Box unless it can be completely cleared. When a driver "blocks the box," it means they have entered a painted grid in the roadway when traffic conditions do not allow them to exit it before a traffic signal changes. This often results in a situation where the driver's vehicle is stuck in the roadway causing potential gridlock. Do your part to keep traffic flowing.
