School Is In – Drive With Caution
As the school year has begun, motorists are reminded to drive with extra caution when approaching and entering a school zone, when entering onto school property or when approaching a school bus actively involved in either receiving or discharging children. In order to ensure the safety of the Borough’s school children, Police Department personnel will be placing an added emphasis on monitoring the operation of motor vehicles on the roadways where local schools are located in order to enforce those parts of the NJ motor vehicle code that pertain to school zones and school busses.
In keeping with the safety of children, motorists are further reminded to use caution in the area of schools, even after the school day ends when children leave later due to extracurricular activities or participating in or attending school sporting events.
