Traffic Enforcement Initiative

Mayor James Davis, Chief of Police Robert Geisler and Pam O’Donnell of the Catch You Later Foundation announce the City of Bayonne Traffic Enforcement Initiative Against Aggressive and Distracted Driving.

As the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic begin to fade in our rearview mirror and the time to Fall Back One Hour has pulled up alongside us the Bayonne Police Department, led by the Traffic Enforcement Unit, has begun an enforcement campaign against aggressive and distracted driving.

The disruption and anxiety that Covid-19 created in our everyday life has led to increased levels of driving infractions. Drivers get distracted by cell phone calls and text messages, take their eyes off the road or simply don't pay attention. Aggressive drivers hit the gas pedal too hard, switch lanes without warning or follow other drivers too closely. A typical road rage incident happens when at least one driver chooses to act out in anger. Usually, the driver is already feeling stress when something triggers an aggressive reaction. Many road-rage drivers reported being under duress in other areas of their lives, like work or relationships, all of which contribute to a driver's stress level, making them more vulnerable to engaging in irrational behavior.  Read more...
