Clinton Police Chief J. Cory Kubinak announced today that the Clinton Police Department will be conducting a Street Smart NJ pedestrian safety education campaign aimed increasing awareness of pedestrian safety in the Town of Clinton.
The Clinton Police Department, in collaboration with goHunterdon, the local nonprofit transportation management association, will work to educate motorists and pedestrians on their roles and responsibilities in maintaining a safe pedestrian environment.
The Town of Clinton Street Smart NJ campaign will focus on two key behaviors:
• Distraction (motorists and pedestrians)
“Even with fewer vehicles on the road in recent months, we have seen an increase in speeding and distracted driving,” Chief Kubinak said. “As our downtown begins to open and welcome back pedestrians, safety becomes a high priority. We want to make sure that motorists and pedestrians are aware of the role that they can play in ensuring safety.”
Starting June 25, and continuing through July 19, safety messaging will be shared via signage, social media and printed materials distributed within the community.
Businesses, organizations and individuals interested in helping to promote the Street Smart NJ message in Clinton may contact Tara Shepherd, executive director, 908.930.9053.
