Extra Enforcement to Seek Turnaround in Distracted Driving Incidents

Big Island Now file

Law enforcement officers from the Hightstown Police Department and East Windsor Township Police Department will be cracking down on distracted drivers during April as part of New Jersey's UDrive. The lesson: Pay full attention to the road while driving. Officials say the goal is to have zero fatalities and they're hoping the public will help in the effort to crack down on distracted driving.

Howell Officer Michael Moore was in a police vehicle on Wednesday when an 80-year-old driver sped through a stop sign and crashed into Moore, police said.

Nayvelt and his passenger, Lyudmila Nayvelt, 75, of Howell, were taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center in Neptune, where they were treated for minor injuries, police said.

"Even though you may have a busy life and routinely try to multi-task, it's time to put a stop to distracted driving habits, which put your life and the lives of others in grave danger", said David Pabst, director of the WisDOT Bureau of Transportation Safety. The man will be issued citations.

"The campaign is created to raise awareness of the importance of attentive and engaged driving and will focus on the dangers distracted driving poses to everyone on the road, including bicyclists and pedestrians".

At Scott, an alarming increase of personnel driving distracted has surfaced, and with a high volume of pedestrian traffic, this could mean disaster or death.

In 2014, 3,179 people were killed, and 431,000 injured in crashes involving a distracted driver. Previously, calling #77 was for reporting aggressive drivers.
