NJ State Police: “70 additional troopers deployed state-wide”
If you’re thinking about being careless when it comes to drinking and driving this weekend, think again.
New Jersey State Police has announced that they will add 70 more troopers to the streets for Super Bowl weekend, through Monday. They have increased their patrols, since Friday, “to target dangerous driving behaviors”. Troopers are going to be focusing on DWI’s, aggressive driving, seat-belt usage, cell phone violations, and drivers that exhibit signs of distracted driving.
They have some tips so that motorists can stay as safe as possible this weekend:
“Avoid drinking too much alcohol too fast. Pace yourself - eat; take breaks; alternate with non-alcoholic drinks. Designate your sober driver before the party begins, and give that person your vehicle keys.Use an available car service or ride sharing application if you don’t have a designated driver. Remember, Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk. Take the keys and never let a friend leave your sight if you think they are about to drive impaired.”
As always, authorities urge you to “make the right decisions.”
