THIS WEEK -Pedestrian Safety, Road Closure, House Fire, Enhanced Enforcement

  • Spring Safety Initiative - Pedestrians 

South Brunswick Police are stepping up pedestrian safety efforts as part of Spring Safety Initiative this week. Chief Raymond Hayducka said, “With most schools off and warmer weather there will be an increase in pedestrian traffic this week. Motorists need to be aware of safety rules including yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks.” South Brunswick had 10 pedestrians struck by cars in 2018.  A State grant will allow for an extra 200 hours of police officer time focused on pedestrian safety enforcement.

Officers will be out this entire Spring Break week focused on the major roadways where pedestrian crossings occur including; Kingston Lane by the Library, Beekman Road by Veterans Park, Promenade Boulevard, Georges Road, and Kingston Lane. This enforcement effort will raise awareness and cut down on accidents.
Stouts Lane is CLOSED all week from 8:30am to 4pm for PSEG work.

The road is closed between the entrance to Target mall and the Tree Farm Road.
  • Fire Damages Home
Around 1:15 PM on Friday April 19th, the Monmouth Junction Fire Dept. was dispatched to a Margaret Drive home for a reported fire in a bedroom. Deputy Fire Chief Sean Wert arrived with patrol officers to find a heavy smoke condition inside the residence with a working fire in a second floor bedroom. All the residents were out of the home. Deputy Chief Wert requested the second alarm be dispatched bringing additional resources to help fight the fire.

Firefighters arrived quickly and were able to contain the fire to the upstairs bedroom. Responding to the scene were all 3 South Brunswick Fire Companies (Monmouth Junction, Kingston and Kendall Park), as well as firefighters from Plainsboro, Jamesburg, & North Brunswick Co. #2.
