NJ State Police Warn: Have a Fun and Safe St. Patrick’s Day, But Don’t Push Your Luck

West Trenton, NJ – If you plan on participating in St. Patrick's Day shenanigans this year, don't leave your safety and the safety of others up to luck. Troopers will work with local law enforcement agencies to keep intoxicated drivers off of the roadways and help protect New Jersey motorists from the tragedies associated with impaired driving.

The New Jersey State Police have planned to significantly increase traffic enforcement details across the state from Friday, March 17 to Monday, March 20. During this period, over 140 troopers will be on special details targeting aggressive driving, speed, seatbelt usage, distracted driving, and DWI. The details will supplement regular State Police patrols that will continue to diligently enforce New Jersey’s traffic laws.

Often, we remind motorists to be alert of pedestrians, especially during parades when people are celebrating and may be drinking alcohol. It is just as important to remind pedestrians to pay attention to motorists as well. Here are some safety tips that you and your loved ones can follow to ensure a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day:

• Cross the street at appropriate and legal locations.
• Always obey the crosswalk traffic signal.
• If you are driving in the area of a parade, watch for pedestrians, especially small children.
• Designate a sober driver and give that person your vehicle keys.
• Use mass transit, a car service or ride sharing application if you don’t have a designated driver.
• Remember, Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk. Never let a friend drive drunk. 
• Report hazardous driving by dialing #77 from a hands-free mobile device.

Don’t Mistake Leonard Lance’s Alleged ‘No’ Vote for Progress

March 19, 2017

After two disastrous town halls and constant protestors at his local offices, Congressman Leonard Lance has suddenly reversed course and announced that he would vote against the so-called Affordable Health Care Act. Sounds great, right? Well, no. It’s not quite that simple, and this deceptive statement should not mollify anyone who truly opposes the AHCA.

Let’s take a step back.
