The Medford Township Police Department will be cracking down on distracted drivers during April as part of New Jersey’s UDrive UText UPay enforcement campaign.
Beginning April 1 and running through April 21, the high visibility law enforcement initiative will target motorists who engage in dangerous distracted driving behaviors such as talking on hand-held cell phones and sending text messages while driving.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2016 data shows that at least 3,450 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers, including those who were texting and driving.
In New Jersey, driver inattention was listed as a contributing circumstance in 53 percent of the state’s crashes in 2016. Driver inattention was in fact listed as a contributing factor in crashes at a rate nine times higher than that of the next highest contributing factor (speed).
The campaign is being carried out during the month of April, which the National Safety Council has designated as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The New Jersey campaign is modeled after similar successful high visibility enforcement programs such as Click It or Ticket and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
Road Construction Announcement
Beginning on or about March 25, 2019, Stokes Road (C/R 541) will be closed to all through traffic between Lenape Trail and Tuckerton Rd (C/R 620). Detours for this closure will be posted as follows. For northbound traffic, utilize Tuckerton Road (C/R 620) to Jackson Road. Southbound traffic should utilize Jackson Road or Lenape Trail to Tuckerton Road (C/R 620).

Every minute of every day emergency responders across the country work tirelessly to help save lives at the scene of traffic incidents.
Every year hundreds of emergency responders representing fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, towing and transportation agencies are struck and either injured or killed while responding.
The majority of drivers do not know to move over and slow down when they see responders working on our roadways.
New Jersey’s Move Over law, requires motorists to “Move Over” and change lanes to provide a safe distance for law enforcement officers or other responders on roadsides.
