Back to School
Back to school starts tomorrow, September 5th, 2023! The Boonton Township Police wish all students and school staff a safe and successful school year! Safety is everyone’s responsibility and back-to-school is an opportune time to remind motorists of these safety tips:
*It is against the law to pass a stopped school bus while its lights are flashing and its stop arm is extended.
*Obey speed limits which may change during school zone times.
*Avoid distracted driving and keep your attention on the road.
*Watch for students walking and riding bikes to school.
*Don’t pass a stopped school bus loading or unloading passengers. On a two-lane road, vehicles traveling in both directions must stop.
*Have all vehicle occupants wear their seatbelts.
*Pick-up and drop-off students in designated locations.
Our patrol officers will be present on the roadways to ensure that these rules are followed.
