Light To Be Installed On Avenue Where Nachman and Raizy Glauber z”l Were Killed


glauberNew York – Council Member Stephen Levin announced today that the Department of Transportation (DOT) has agreed to install traffic signals on Kent Avenue. This follows a request from Levin that the DOT take steps to prevent future tragedies along Kent Avenue after a hit-and-run resulted in the deaths of Reb Nachman and RaizyGlauber z”l and their newborn son this March.

There were previously no traffic signals or stop signs on Kent Avenue between Williamsburg Street West and Clymer Street, a stretch of six blocks. This had emboldened reckless drivers, like the one responsible for the hit-and-run that resulted in the deaths of the Glaubers, to turn this neighborhood street into a raceway. The motorist who caused the crash was reportedly driving 60 miles per hour.

Traffic signals will be installed in two locations – one at the intersection of Kent Avenue and Wilson Street and the other at Kent Avenue and Hooper Street.
“The lack of traffic signals had encouraged speeding to take place on Kent Avenue and tragically contributed to the hit-and-run that resulted in the deaths of Raizy and Nathan Glauber and their newborn son.” said Council Member Stephen Levin. “By installing traffic signals on Kent Avenue we are making our city streets safer for all New Yorkers-pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. I want to thank the Department of Transportation for recognizing the need to keep our streets safe and agreeing to install traffic signals along Kent Avenue.”
