ZZZooonnneee………DDDaaannngggeeerrr ZZZooonnneee" Tip Sheet
Traffic in and around school zones can create
significant hazards for children and teens, as well as crossing
guards, school officials, and volunteers. Parents often unknowingly
create traffic hazards as they drop off or pick up their children from
school. To ensure everyone’s safety, be sure to do the following:
• Carpool with neighbors
or friends to minimize the number of vehicles in the school zone
or at the bus stop.
• Review and always follow your school’s
student drop off plan. That means obeying all signs (i.e., no
parking, stopping or standing) and/or individuals directing
traffic, including volunteers. If your school does not have a
plan, contact school officials and suggest one be developed.
• Drop your child off on the school side of the
street, next to the curb. If that is not possible, park your
vehicle legally (never double park) and accompany your child
(using a crosswalk or at the corner) across the street to the
sidewalk in front of the school.
• Follow instructions provided by school
remember they are there to help protect your child.
•Slow down and comply with the posted speed
limit not only in school zones, but where children are walking or
biking along the road. Research shows that neighborhood residents
typically drive 10 mph faster than the posted speed limit in
•Resist the urge to "drop off and dash." Pull
out slowly and look not only ahead, but along‐side
and behind your vehicle for pedestrians, bicyclists, cars, and
•Eliminate all distractions
particularly cell phones and other electronic
devices that reduce your ability to react quickly in driving
situations involving young children and their spontaneous actions.
•Teach your child to look all ways before
crossing and to cross only in crosswalks or at corners (this is
essential in communities that do not have crossing guards).
•Make sure that everyone in your vehicle is
properly restrained in the appropriate child safety seat or
booster seat or seat belt. New Jersey law requires all children
under 8 years of age or who weigh less than 80 pounds to ride in a
properly installed car or booster seat. All children between 8 and
18 years of age and all adults must wear a seat belt.

2014 National Night Out
The Middlesex Borough
Police Department participated in our fifth annual National Night Out
Campaign on August 5, 2014 from 6pm to 8pm at Mountain View Park. The
event was co-sponsored by the Middlesex Borough Municipal Drug
Alliance - Community Outreach.
Police Officers and
Municipal Drug Alliance volunteers were on hand to distribute crime
prevention and safety literature. Officers and the public were able
to interact in a safe, positive, non-enforcement atmosphere. Numerous
games and activities were set up for the children including a fire
truck bounce house. A local DJ volunteered his time to play music and
a local Zumba instructor had groups of kids and adults doing Zumba
throughout evening. The Municipal Drug Alliance provided drinks and
snacks including an ice cream truck that provided free ice cream to
all attendees. The Somerset Patriots mascot “Sparky” also made an
appearance. The Middlesex Fire Department, Middlesex Borough Rescue
Squad, and Middlesex Office of Emergency Management (OEM) were also on
hand with static displays of their vehicles and equipment. The
Middlesex/Dunellen Domestic Violence Response Team, local Girls Scouts
and Boy Scouts Troops also set up displays and handed out
like to thank Middlesex PBA Local 181, Middlesex Borough Municipal
Drug Alliance, local businesses and individuals for their
participation, donations and support. Through the generosity of these
groups and individuals our National Night Out Campaign was a great
success. I would also like to thank our Police Officers as well the
volunteers from all of our participating groups and agencies who
worked so hard to make this event a success.
