*Traffic Advisory* Put The Brakes On Fatalities Day - October 10, 2018

East Brunswick Police Help Promote Annual “Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day”
 
Motorists in New Jersey and throughout the nation are asked to join a day-long effort on October 10, 2018, designed to increase awareness about safe driving behaviors and keep the State’s roadways fatality free for one-day. Known as “Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day”, the national initiative was designed to unite the country in moving toward zero fatalities for one full day by encouraging motorists to obey all traffic laws, including buckling up on every ride; driving the posted speed limit; avoiding distractions while driving; and always being safe and sober behind the wheel. Our goal is to experience a day when all roadway users are extra vigilant and there are no fatalities on our roadways.

To support this effort, the East Brunswick Police Department will keep a sharp eye out for motorists who are driving while distracted or failing to follow the rules of the road and for pedestrians that do not use crosswalks or obey crossing signals. In 2016, 603 individuals in New Jersey lost their lives in motor vehicle-related crashes, up from 562 in 2015. Distracted driving fatalities have increased at an alarming rate over the last 4 years. In 2013 there were 58 fatalities on the State’s roadways in which distracted driving was a major contributing factor. That number ballooned to 115 fatalities in 2016, or 19% of all traffic deaths.
