North Bergen paints the street with blue lines to honor police

Hudson County gets in on the blue line fever spreading across many New Jersey towns.

It appears between the double yellow line running by North Bergen Town Hall, Police Headquarters and in front of the high school.

  1. This is a “me too” move, after so many other towns already have done the same in recent weeks. This unfortunately does not exemplify the unbias of law. This further denotes an “us vs. them” sentiment. Totally uncalled for.

  2. Its a line of paint people why are people getting so worked up and saying negative comments when the town tries to do something nice and honor that PROTECT YOU !
