Campaigns & Programs
The Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department participates in the regular “Click-It or Ticket “campaigns. The next campaign is from May 19th to June 1st. Motorists are required to wear their seat-belts under 39:3-76.2 (rear seat passengers under 39:3-76.2F(C)) at all times. The “Click-It or Ticket” campaign simply means that in addition to officers enforcing these laws on regular patrol, there will be additional concentrated efforts underway to educate the public.
The Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department aggressively enforces impaired driving from the use of alcohol or drugs on a daily basis. Certain times of the year, Federal programs provide additional funding for enhanced patrols. Our agency participates in these programs and adds patrols who’s primary focus is impaired operation of motor vehicles.A link to the federal programs related to Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, as well as the campaign dates, is here: http://www.nhtsa.gov/drivesober/
