Ridgewood NJ, a reminder from the Bergen County Prosecutors Office , the summer is winding down, school is about to start don’t forget to keep your eyes up.

The final vacation and travel days of the summer are here, so attentive driving is crucial.

DID YOU KNOW? Nearly half of the fatal crashes in 2016 were caused by distracted driving (more than speeding or even driving while intoxicated!). Distracted driving can be talking or texting on a cell phone, or even talking to your kids in the backseat.

So stay focused, use Safe Phone Zones to call, text, and use mobile apps, observe speed limits, and make sure everyone in your car is wearing a seatbelt.
