North Bergen Police to run Vehicle Inspection Checkpoint this Thursday June 30th


NORTH BERGEN, NJ – The North Bergen Police Department, in conjunction with the New Jersey State Motor Vehicles Commission Mobile Inspection Unit, will be running a Vehicle Inspection Checkpoint within the township on Thursday, June 30, 2016. The operation is designed to remove dangerous vehicles from the road and promote safe driving practices.

 “As always our primary concern is the public safety of our residents,” said North Bergen Chief of Police Robert Dowd. “We aim to make our roadways safer by removing vehicles from the road that don’t comply with the guidelines set out by the New Jersey State Motor Vehicles Commission.”

Any vehicles found to be delinquent in their annual inspection will be ticketed and then inspected on the spot by the NJ MVC Mobile Inspection Unit. Vehicles that are deemed too dangerous to drive due to serious mechanical defects will be impounded and the driver would be given an additional summons.
