North Bergen Helps Promote Annual “Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day”

Mayor Sacco and Board of Commissioners pass proclamation Sept. 25

NORTH BERGEN, NJ–  During the September 25 Board of Commissioners, Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the Board of Commissioners passed a proclamation supporting “Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day,” a national safe driving initiative that takes place every October 10..  “This is an important initiative for North Bergen to be a part of,” said Mayor Sacco. “We want our streets to be even safer than they already are. Residents and people traveling through North Bergen should be sure they are driving safely and without any distractions. We want to remind drivers to make positive changes when they get behind the wheel.”

Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day is a national initiative designed to unite the country in moving toward zero fatalities for one full day by encouraging motorists to obey all traffic laws, including buckling up, driving the posted speed limit, avoiding distractions while driving and always being safe and sober behind the wheel. The goal is to experience a day with no fatalities on roadways thanks to all drivers being extra vigilant.
