South Brunswick Police Department Helps Promote Annual “Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day”

South Brunswick Police Department Helps 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, 2019, 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 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. 

More than 35,000 lives are lost each year in motor vehicle-related crashes nationwide. Our goal is to encourage every driver, pedestrian, motorcyclist and bicyclist to be exceptionally careful on October 10 so that for at least one day there will be no fatalities on New Jersey's roads.

This year the focus of New Jersey’s Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day campaign will be on promoting pedestrian safety to reduce then number of vehicle/pedestrian crashes and save lives. Last year, nearly a third of the 563 individuals who died in motor-vehicle related crashes on New Jersey roadways were on foot.

South Brunswick Police Department would like to challenge all drivers to drive safely, and help us realize our goal of zero fatalities, especially on Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day. Please remember that while we often target automobile drivers, we are also reaching out to pedestrians themselves, as traffic safety is a shared responsibility. 

To support this effort, during the week leading up to October 10th, South Brunswick Police Department will be increasing our visibility on the township’s roadways, enforcing traffic laws specifically related to pedestrian safety, and educating the public about traffic safety concerns, all of which are designed to support the goal of zero fatalities.
