Heartbreak in Parsippany: Fatal Crash Prompts Safety Measures

PARSIPPANY — On Tuesday, July 9, Parsippany-Troy Hills Mayor James Barberio was at the scene of a horrific accident on Littleton Road, and was heartbroken over this tragedy where our community experienced the senseless loss of a child’s life due to a motor vehicle crash.  In the wake of recent fatalities on State and County roads here in Parsippany, I am calling for action from the NJDOT to increase pedestrian safety and respond with a fix on their streets.  I’m asking for the county’s help and commitment to slow down vehicles and reduce the overall risk to our residents and visitors on their roads.

I have spoken with Chief Pantina to implement aggressive action to slow cars down on
Parsippany roads and to be relentless in enforcing the laws to save lives and protect our
community. Safety cannot take a back seat. The Parsippany Police Department will immediately begin expanded enforcement against drivers who fail to recognize the importance of pedestrians and bicyclists on our streets. I have spoken with our Engineering department to prioritize pedestrians alongside cars for all ongoing and future road projects. Instead of just focusing on pavement condition and paving the street in kind, they will layer in safety improvements for all resurfacing projects.

I am truly saddened by the unnecessary loss of a community member last night, and my heart goes out to his family.
