The Jefferson Township Police will be participating in “Put the Brakes on Fatalities” Day, which was established in 2001 to focus attention on reducing the traffic fatalities that occur each year in the United States. Nationally, there were 35,092 roadway deaths in 2015, while New Jersey lost 603 individuals on the State’s roadways in 2016. As part of a continuing effort in “moving toward zero fatalities,” motorists, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists are asked to take extra care on October 10, 2017 to prevent traffic crashes and make this a fatality-free day across New Jersey.

To reinforce this lifesaving message and further support the initiative, the Jefferson Township Police Department will be conducting traffic enforcement on the roadways of Jefferson Township, October 10, 2017, throughout the day.
