Secaucus Police brings attention to aggressive driving violations

Dear Editor:
The Secaucus Police have announced a campaign against aggressive driving. Police officers will be raising awareness and focusing on the enforcement of aggressive driving violations including the failure to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. On April 1, a new state law took effect which requires motorists to “stop and stay stopped” for pedestrians in crosswalks. This law aims to reduce motor vehicle and pedestrian-related crashes. It requires motorists to stop and stay stopped for pedestrians in crosswalks. Prior to this change, motorists were required to yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. Motorists violating the new law face a $200 fine, plus court costs, and two points on their license. They can also be subject to 15 days of community service and insurance surcharges.
