  • Man faces possible life term over death of Bergen County woman

    May 09, 2014

    Every alcohol-related traffic accident is preventable. The 164 deaths caused by New Jersey drunk drivers in 2011, reported by the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility, never had to happen.

    May 01, 2014

    Leaving the scene of an accident or fatality is the first of a series of irresponsible actions.

  • New Jersey woman ejected into Shark River dies in Belmar crash

    April 23, 2014

    Few traffic collisions happen because drivers crash on purpose. Bergen County at-fault drivers may not set out to cause a car accident, but New Jersey laws can hold them responsible for mistakes.
