Tri-State Transportation Campaign: Introducing Families for Safe Streets New Jersey

News and Opinion from Tri-State Transportation Campaign

So far this year 264 people have been killed on New Jersey roads, 70 of which were pedestrians or people riding bikes.

If the past is any indicator of the future, that number is unfortunately going to increase in the next several weeks, because the “101 Days of Summer” are the most dangerous time of year on US roads. On average, 10 more people are killed each day between Memorial Day and Labor Day compared to the rest of the year.

We don’t have to accept this tragic state of affairs. And some people in New Jersey have decided they’re not going to.
