Holding motorists accountable for preventable pedestrian crashes

Take a moment to consider the inherent imbalance of the average crosswalk anywhere throughout the state. It is there, between two thin lines painted onto the asphalt, where New Jersey pedestrians are expected to entrust the safety of their lives and limbs to anonymous motorists. This happens thousands of times each day with nothing more than a stop sign or traffic light to separate pedestrians from cars trucks and SUVs that weigh several tons on average.

What prevents truck drivers from using drugs and alcohol?

Commercial tractor-trailers provide an essential service by keeping our economy functioning. Many New Jersey businesses rely on semi-trucks to transport goods and materials in and out of the Garden State. Despite their utility, it's important to remember that these large and enormously heavy vehicles also hold the potential to cause death and serious injuries to other motorists.

Governor holds the line against changes in state DUI laws

On March 23, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill that would have substantially changed current drunk driving punishments. At issue with the proposed legislation were a few provisions aimed at requiring even first-time offenders of the state's DUI laws to install ignition interlock devices on their vehicles. The proposed bill, A1368, would also reduce the length of time for mandatory license suspensions with regards to first-time DUI offenders. The vetoed bill would have cut those suspensions from three months down to 10 days.
