The City of Linden is conducting a Street Smart NJ month-long pedestrian safety campaign. The campaign kicked off with a news conference on Monday, September 23, and runs through October.
Linden’s campaign coincides with National Walk & Bike to School Day, on October 2, an event that promotes health and safer routes for students to walk and bike to school. During the campaign, Linden Police Department will be increasing its enforcement of pedestrian laws and working with several partners – including EZ Ride, the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety (NJDHTS) – to educate people who are driving and walking. Linden received a $41,000 grant from NJDHTS to support its campaign.
