Drive Sober or Get Pulled Get Pulled Over Grant

Police Department - 8/17/2017 10:26:53 AM

Every year, more than 10,000 lives are lost due to alcohol-related crashes.  Can you imagine losing a family member or friend to an accident that could have been 100% preventable? Driving while impaired can cost suspension or revocation of your license, incur extreme expenses for towing, car repair and medical fees, steep fines and a host of other charges in addition to the risk of jail time.
 
We, as members of the Morris Area Coalition for Education and Positive Choices, are grateful to the State of New Jersey and the Division of Highway Traffic Safety for the pro-active stance they are taking on impaired drivers.  “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” is an annual Labor Day crackdown for which New Jersey municipalities have received grants to put more law enforcement personnel on the roadways. This year’s program will be conducted from August 18th through September 4th. Police in the Garden State will conduct a zero-tolerance impaired driving enforcement effort that will include sobriety checkpoints.
 
“In the past, sober meant free from alcohol, but in today’s environment, sober can also mean free of drugs or unaffected by a chemical substance.  Our Coalition is in full support of this initiative as we are strong advocates of encouraging people to be responsible and able to enjoy themselves without the threat of drugs or alcohol”, explained Hanover Township Committeeman, Thomas “Ace” Gallagher.  “Simply put, do not risk your life and the lives of others on the road.”
 
The key to averting a tragedy as the result of driving while impaired is to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving and through visible enforcement and public education. “The message is clear”, stated Mayor James R. Barberio. “Prevention is our goal. Everyone must play a role in this life-saving effort. You will suffer the consequences if you choose to make the wrong decision and get behind the wheel.  If you are involved in a situation where you have been drinking, turn your keys over to someone who is sober or ‘Uber’ it home.  If you witness someone you suspect is under the influence, take away his or her keys or call 911.”
 
Driving while under the influence is something to be taken very seriously. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over is a wonderful way to keep roadways as safe as possible for everyone.  End the summer on a high note and remind your friends and family to plan ahead for a safe and sober ride home.

ALERT: Tax Bill Scam

Tax, Water & Sewer - 8/10/2017 1:15:41 PM

A recurring scam in other municipalities is starting to spread into ours. Scammers will call you and advise you that you failed to pay your tax bill. They will quickly add that you can take care of it over the phone by providing your credit card information. DO NOT DO THIS!

It is a scam and we do not want our residents becoming victims of it. Again, the Parsippany Tax Assesor will not call you and advise you of a missing payment and request you pay the bill over the phone.
