Traffic reminder near schools

With the assistance of the Bayonne Board of Education, the Bayonne Police Traffic Enforcement Unit is taking this time to remind those dropping off or picking up children of the need to ensure the Public Right-of-Way is kept clear, especially around schools.

Accessible and unobstructed streets, sidewalk and driveways are imperative, not only for our Emergency Services to respond to calls for service, but also allows our residents to move about the area safely and freely. This awareness and education campaign is being conducted in the hope that future enforcement action will not be necessary.

The Traffic Enforcement Unit directs residents’ attention to the following violations: the improper discharge or pickup of passengers; a vehicle left running unattended; blocked driveways; and double parking. Residents are asked to keep fire hydrants clear.

With the inclement and severe weather of winter now here, residents are reminded to remove snow and ice from their vehicle completely before operation.

The city said it understands parking is at a premium during school entry and dismissal times, but with everyone’s assistance it can avoid the unwelcome step of issuing summons and impounding vehicles.
