North Brunswick Police Department Launches Initiative to Reduce Traffic Fatalities and Save Lives

May 7, 2024

The North Brunswick Police Department is proud to announce the launch of a new initiative that began January 1, 2024 aimed at reducing traffic-related fatalities and enhancing road safety within the community. This proactive effort underscores the department’s commitment to preserving lives and fostering a culture of responsible driving.

As part of this initiative, the North Brunswick Police Department will be collaborating with the neighboring towns of Edison and South Brunswick along with the State Police to intensify enforcement measures targeting reckless driving, distracted driving, and speeding. By pooling resources and expertise, law enforcement agencies aim to crackdown on hazardous behaviors that endanger motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists alike.

“With the alarming rise in traffic fatalities in Middlesex County, it’s imperative that we take decisive action to address the root causes of these tragedies,” stated Chief Joseph Battaglia of the North Brunswick Police Department. “Through coordinated enforcement efforts and community engagement, we are dedicated to making our roads safer for everyone.”

The partnership between the North Brunswick Police Department, the Edison Police Department, the South Brunswick Police Department, and the N.J. State Police signifies a unified approach to combating dangerous driving behaviors. By combining forces, law enforcement agencies will deploy additional patrols, conduct targeted enforcement operations, and implement educational initiatives to raise awareness about the importance of safe driving practices.

“We urge all members of the community to join us in this critical endeavor,” Mayor Womack emphasized. “Together, we can make a meaningful difference and prevent senseless loss of life on our roadways. Remember, the life we save could be yours.”

Residents are encouraged to report any instances of reckless driving, distracted driving, or speeding to the North Brunswick Police Department or their local law enforcement agency.
