    I wasn’t there, but the speed that most people drive through in Paddock Lake on Highway 50 is ridiculous. It’s 35mph, YEA RIGHT I’ve been passed knowing the vehicle is going 50 or more.

    Something REALLY needs to be DONE in the area. The Sheriff Dept. NEEDS TO CRACK DOWN IN TOWN and do it continuously!

    I can see how someone can get injured or killed in the area. look at ALL the accidents at the intersection they have had!
