Boonton Township Police Conclude Spring-Time Distracted Driving Initiative
Over the course of the past few weeks the Boonton Township Police Department participated in the federally funded “UDrive. UText. UPay.” campaign. Through the New Jersey Department of Highway and Traffic Safety (NJDHTS) this department received funding for 100 additional man hours which allowed for additional enforcement patrols to be on the road. During that time the officers of the Boonton Township Police Department issued 21 summons for cell phone violations, 3 summons for speeding, 2 summons for careless driving, 1 summons for reckless driving, 1 summons for a seatbelt violation, and 18 summons for various other moving and equipment violations.
While this campaign has come to an end, you will still see our officers out on patrol conducting enforcement actions as we do our best to keep our residents and the motoring public passing through Boonton Township safe. Remember, distracted driving is any activity that diverts a driver’s attention from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and pedestrian safety and nationwide cause injury to almost a half million people, and kill over three thousand people every year.
Please remember to drive safely!
