Drivers encouraged to drive extra safely on Oct. 10



The Monroe Township Police Department will observe “Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day” on Oct. 10.

The day was established 12 years ago to focus attention on reducing the 37,461 traffic fatalities that occurred in 2016 in the United States. In New Jersey, 604 individuals lost their lives on the state’s roadways in 2016. As part of a continuing effort of “moving toward zero fatalities,” motorists, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists are asked to take extra care on Oct. 10 to prevent traffic  crashes and make this a fatality-free day across New Jersey, according to information provided by the police department.
