Strategy

The traffic laws of New Jersey set the framework for driving on our roads safely.  Research has found that enforcing the traffic laws (issuing tickets) is an essential part of reducing road casualties/fatalities. The Westampton Township Police Department Traffic Safety Unit is committed to its role in reducing traffic related injuries, property damage and fatalities by focusing on: 

  • Speeding
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI) 
  • Failure to Wear Seat Belts
  • Failure to comply with traffic signs or devices
  • Aggressive Driving
