Click It or Ticket, a national
campaign coordinated annually by the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration to increase the proper use of seat belts, takes place
May 18–31, 2015.
Using a seat belt is one of the
most effective ways to prevent serious injury or death in the event of
a crash. Using lap/shoulder seat belts can reduce the risk of fatal
injury by almost 50%. In 2013, more than 21,000 passenger vehicle
occupants died in motor vehicle crashes in the United State; 49% were
unrestrained at the time of the crash. An additional 2.4 million
nonfatal injuries were treated in emergency departments in 2013. Yet,
millions of persons continue to travel unrestrained.
During the 2015 Click it or Ticket
campaign,* law enforcement agencies
across the nation will conduct intensive, high-visibility enforcement
of seat belt laws, during both daytime and nighttime hours. Nighttime
enforcement of seat belt laws is encouraged because seat belt use is
lower at night.

preventing motor vehicle crash-related injuries is available at

belt use and strategies to improve it is available at
Project Medicine Drop
For too many New
Jerseyans, addiction begins in the medicine cabinet. The New Jersey
Division of Consumer Affairs has developed Project Medicine Drop as
an important component of its effort to halt the abuse and diversion
of prescription drugs. It allows consumers to dispose of unused and
expired medications anonymously, seven days a week, 365 days a year,
at “prescription drug drop boxes” located within the headquarters of
participating police departments.
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.
