PARSIPPANY — The Parsippany Police Department asks you to mark your calendar on Friday, October 10 for “The Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day Program” that in the last ten years has promoted reducing all fatalities.
The purpose of the goal is to heighten consciousness about what people can do to reduce transportation fatalities and accidents on American highways, roads and streets by calling attention to reducing fatalities on one specific day and also with other traffic safety events held during the year.
Statistics still indicate slightly over 33,500 traffic fatalities occur every year. That’s about 90 fatalities every single day – one fatality every 16 minutes.
