Distracted Driver Crackdown

GALLOWAY – Police will be cracking down on distracted drivers in April as part of New Jersey’s UDrive UText UPay enforcement campaign.
From April 1 through April 21, the high-visibility law enforcement initiative will target motorists engaged in distracted driving behavior such as talking on handheld cellphones and sending text messages while driving.

“Distracted driving is a serious issue on our roadways,” said Gary Poedubicky, acting director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety. "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2014 alone, 3,179 people were killed in distracted driving crashes and an estimated 431,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.”
The National Safety Council has designated April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
