New Jersey roads getting safer

Governor McGreevey's safety initiatives are bearing results. Statistics show that New Jersey's roads are becoming safer and less congested: the number of pedestrians killed on New Jersey's roads dropped by 20 percent last year and overall highway deaths followed this trend by declining as well.

Over the past year and a half, the NJDOT has advanced a number of the Governor's initiatives designed to improve safety. The landmark Safe Corridors program aggressively addresses safety on New Jersey's roads with the highest accident rates. In addition, the #77 program urges motorists to report aggressive drivers.

NJDOT also continues to invest in transportation improvements like new sidewalks, better intersections, new traffic signals and better signs, all of which protect motorists and pedestrians. As part of his ongoing efforts to keep New Jersey's children safe and secure, Governor McGreevey recently announced the award of $13 million in grants, $6 million through NJDOT's Safe Streets to Schools program and $7 million to build bike paths throughout New Jersey.
