‘Drew’s Law’ to mandate 15mph speed limit near state parks [POLL]

The life of an 11-year-old Keansburg boy was taken when he was hit by a car crossing the street. The boy is the inspiration behind a bill to lower speed limit in or near parks.

The law, named “Drew’s Law”, is named after Drew Keough, who was killed while crossing the street in April near Forest Park.

While we don’t have any report of the driver going too fast or somehow being inattentive – other than not being charged in the incident – is a law like this necessary?

Were I a member of the Keough family, I’d probably say “yes”.

But couldn’t you make the case that anywhere children are at play, speed limits should be reduced – and in many cases they are.

It’s just a matter of the speed limits being enforced. Let me say that word again – “enforced!”

So with all due respect to the Keough family – you can’t help but feel that “Drew’s Law” is another attempt by politicians to latch onto an unfortunate accident.

Again, and I can’t stress this enough, it’s beyond sad when a family member loses his or her life at the tender age of 11 due to a traffic accident.

But do you feel a law like “Drew’s Law” is a good start to end these types of tragedies – or despite their good intent, accidents like this will continue to happen – unless the laws that are already in place are enforced?
