Highway crashes claim the lives of nearly 34,000 people in the United States each year. Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day aims to keep roadways fatality-free for one day. Motorists will be encouraged to obey all traffic laws through education and enforcement, including buckling up, driving the posted speed limit, avoiding distractions while driving, and remaining safe and sober behind the wheel.
Graduated Drivers License Program
Every 10 minutes a teen crashes a motor vehicle in New Jersey and entirely too many of these teens tragically lose their lives. The Graduated License Program provides restrictions that reduce young driver exposure to crash risks including driving with other teens and driving at night.
Seven pedestrians were killed in 2010 in Atlantic County and more than 100 pedestrians are killed in New Jersey each year.
