Driving Enforcement Month

28-March-2017

   Stating on Starting -1-April the Bogota Police Department will begin its campaign to reduce distracted driving. Police Officers will be station through out the Borough to obverse that anyone operating a motor vehicle in a safe and legally manner. The Police will be on the look-out for anyone using a cell phone for calling , or texting, along with other  ways which may cause distracted driving. The following is a statement for Bogota Police Chief Daniel Maye:
For Immediate Release:
Contact: Chief Daniel Maye
Distracted Driving Enforcement and Education Campaign
UDrive. UText. UPay.
to be carried out locally from
April 1 – April 21, 2017
(Bogota, NJ) -- Law enforcement officers from the Bogota Police Department will be cracking down on distracted drivers during April as part of New Jersey’s UDrive, UText, UPay, enforcement campaign.
Beginning April 1 and running through April 21, the high visibility law enforcement initiative will target motorists who engage in dangerous distracted driving behaviors such as talking on hand-held cell phones and sending text messages while driving.
“Distracted driving is a serious issue on our roadways,” said Gary Poedubicky, Acting Director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety. "The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2014 alone, 3,179 people were killed in distracted driving crashes and an estimated 431,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.”
Despite the fact that using a hand held cell phone or texting while driving is illegal in New Jersey, the practice appears to be widespread. In a recent survey conducted by the FDU Public Mind Poll for the Division of Highway Traffic Safety, 67% of respondents said they “very often” see people driving and talking on a hand held cell phone. 42% of respondents said they “very often” see driver’s texting.
The campaign is being carried out during the month of April, which the National Safety Council has designated as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The New Jersey campaign is modeled after similar successful high visibility enforcement programs such as Click It or Ticket and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
