Distracted Driving Enforcement and Awareness Campaign to Start

Posted: March 27, 2023

Law enforcement officers from the Randolph 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, 2023 and running through the end of the month, 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.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that from 2011-2020, 32,000 people were killed in distracted driving-related crashes on our nation’s roads. Driver inattention has remained the most frequently cited cause of fatal and incapacitating crashes in NJ, contributing to 50 percent of NJ crashes from 2016-2020.

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system—anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving. Drivers are urged to put their phones away when behind the wheel.

Follow these steps for a safe driving experience:

  • If you are expecting a text message or need to send one, pull over and park your car in a safe location. Once you are safely off the road and parked, it is safe to text. Ask your passenger to be your “designated texter.” Allow them access to your phone to respond to calls or messages.
  • Do not engage in social media scrolling or messaging while driving.
  • Cell phone use is habit-forming. Struggling to not text and drive? Activate your phone’s “Do Not Disturb” feature, or put your phone in the trunk, glove box, or back seat of your vehicle until you arrive at your destination.

Hidden in Plain Sight

Posted: March 21, 2023

“Hidden in Plain Sight” will be held at the Randolph Community Center on April 19, 2023 at 7:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the Randolph Municipal Alliance Committee and presented by the Morris County Prevention is Key organization, the event will highlight how detecting risky behavior in teenagers may be more difficult than parents think. In fact, some of these red flags are visible in a child’s room but not immediately noticeable.

“Hidden in Plain Sight” will offer parents an opportunity to walk through a simulated bedroom and learn about the hazards that are often just that—in plain sight. This program is designed to help parents of teens recognize unfamiliar hazards that are often in plain sight.

A prevention specialist, along with a member of Randolph law enforcement, will guide attendees through the exhibit and explain substance abuse trends, signs, symptoms and culture in an effort to raise awareness about drugs and alcohol and provide resources for parents and community members to help keep youth healthy and drug-free. NARCAN training will also be provided.
