Would you like a chance to meet a Scotch Plains Police Officer? If you’re speeding in Scotch Plains, chances are you will.
In response to countless complaints from residents about speeding on our streets, Scotch Plains Police Chief Brian T. Mahoney has instructed his Patrol Division as well as his Traffic Bureau to make speeding, and careless driving, a top priority.
“Our police vehicles are equipped with state of the art radar units and officers that are trained to use them”, said Chief Mahoney. The new initiative is called, “Slow Down or Pay Up”.
“Slow Down or Pay Up” is not a two week crack down. Speeding and careless driving near our schools, on our narrow residential roads, and on our primary roadways, will simply no longer be tolerated.
There are no quick fixes to combat speeders. “The plan is simple”, said the Chief. “Slow Down or Pay Up”.
