Bein hazmanim crack down

...U DRIVE.......U TEXT......U PAY!
The Lakewood Township Police will join the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety in the Distracted Driver 2016 Statewide Crackdown. The campaign which runs from April 1st - 21st, will focus on driver behaviors that distract from the task of driving, such as talking on hand-held cell phone or sending text messages.

Distracted driving kills. The friends, family and neighbors of thousands of people killed nationwide each year in distracted driving crashes will tell you it is a very serious safety problem. The nearly half a million people injured each year will agree. Distracted driving is a dangerous epidemic in New Jersey's roadways. Driver inattention has been a major contributing factor in nearly 800,000 motor vehicle crashes in the state from 2010 to 2014 and nationwide, 3,179 were killed in distracted driving crashes in 2014 alone.
