FAIRFIELD, NJ — Fairfield Township Council President Michael McGlynn read a proclamation on Monday declaring the township’s support for the local and national “Click It or Ticket” seat belt mobilization campaign, which began on May 22 and will continue June 4.

McGlynn stated that there were 604 motor vehicle fatalities in New Jersey in 2016, and a large percentage of those killed were not wearing seatbelts.

He explained that the “use of a seat belt remains the most effective way to avoid death and serious injury in a motor vehicle crash,” and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that “135,000 lives were saved by safety belt usage nationally between 1975-2000.”

New Jersey is participating in the nationwide “Click It or Ticket” seat belt mobilization “in an effort to raise awareness and increase seat belt usage through a combination of high visibility enforcement and public education.”

“The Division of Highway Traffic Safety has set a goal of increasing the seatbelt usage rate in the state from the current level of 93 percent to 95 percent,” said McGlynn.

The Fairfield Police Department’s website warns residents that its officers will be participating in the state-wide initiative to promote seat belt usage until June 4, and the department urges everyone to comply with the state law and wear seatbelts at all times—whether driving or as a passenger.

A Special Thank You For Helping Us Weather The Storm

June 18, 2018

About a month ago, on May 15, 2018, something happened to me and my family that changed our lives. An act of God, apparently a “microburst,” tore through our front yard, and uprooted an approximately 19,000 pound tree. The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
