Advisory: School’s Out, Drive Safe


WHO: State legislators, local elected officials, advocates and experts

WHAT: The 100 days of summer are the most dangerous days of the year on the road. School’s Out, Drive Safe serves as a reminder for drivers, pedestrians, bike riders and all users of New Jersey’s roads to use caution and care when out and about this summer with the goal of zero fatalities. The event also will announce the formation of "Families for Safe Streets New Jersey." Sunil and Sangeeta Badlani along with other families affected by traffic violence have formed the New Jersey chapter. The Badlanis have been a prominent voice in New Jersey when it comes to road safety. “Nikhil’s Law,” signed in August 2015, was named for their 11-year-old son who was tragically killed in a motor vehicle crash involving a driver who ran a stop sign on the South Orange/Maplewood border near South Mountain Reservation. “Nihkil’s Law” emphasizes to new drivers the importance of following the state’s motor vehicle traffic laws.
