The Harding Township Police Department Recognizes Annual
“Put the Brakes on Fatalities” Day on October 10
-- Statewide Initiative Challenges Motorists to Buckle-Up, Slow Down and Obey All Traffic Laws to Keep New Jersey Roads Fatality-Free --
Police Chief Mark Giansanti states, “This is an important message that needs to be received by all drivers to recognize the need to slow down, paying strict attention to driving and eliminate distractions”.
“Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day” was established twelve years ago to focus attention on reducing the 35,092 traffic fatalities that occurred in 2015 in the United States. In New Jersey, 562 individuals lost their lives on the State’s roadways in 2015. 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 to prevent traffic crashes and make this a fatality-free day across New Jersey. To reinforce this lifesaving message and further support the initiative, a proclamation will be adopted at the next Township Committee Meeting, Harding Township Police Officers are available to discuss all measures that a driver can take to reduce crashes and resulting fatalities and we encourage all drivers to obey the rules and increase care when observing a pedestrian or bike rider.
Please feel free and interact with HTPD officers and contact headquarters to speak with me or any officers regarding this incentive. (973-455-0500-0)
