22 May: Senate Approves Van Drew Bill To Help Towns Set Speed Limits

TRENTON – The Senate today approved a bill sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew to help municipalities and counties set speed limits for roads based on specific criteria such as the presence of school children and the proximity of parks, child care facilities and senior centers.

The Senate approved the bill by a vote of 39 to 0 and forwarded it to the Assembly.

“This bill will provide officials and community residents the backup they need to justify a call to slow down the traffic to maximize safety in a neighborhood,” said Senator Van Drew, D-Cape May, Atlantic and Cumberland.
