As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, our traffic enforcement initiative has been scaled back the past several weeks to protect our officers and the public from community spread, in addition to the reduced traffic that has been on our roadways within our communities.
However, with the warmer weather approaching and the easing of the Governor’s restrictions to certain locations within our State, Newtown Township Law Enforcement officers will be returning to proactively enforcing all segments of the motor vehicle codes to ensure for the safety of the motoring public, as well as the pedestrian and bicyclist that are traversing our roadways.
I am asking for your support that all operators of motor vehicles abide by all the rules of the road; watch your speed, obey traffic control signals, yield to pedestrians, put down your cell phones, and wear your seatbelts so that unnecessary contact does not have to occur between any of our officers and you. #Communitysupport
