Seat Belt Enforcement and Education Campaign to be Conducted Locally as Part of Nationwide Click It or Ticket Mobilization May 21 – June 3, 2018
PINE BEACH, NJ — Buckle up. Pine Beach Police will be on the lookout for unbuckled drivers and passengers as part of the national "Click it or Ticket" campaign from May 21 through June 3, the police department announced on Monday.
A key focus of this year's campaign is to promote seat belt usage by adults in all seating positions in the vehicle, both front and rear seats. Currently, about 94.07 percent of front seat passengers use seat belts. However, only about 48 percent of back seat passengers use seat belts, according to the most recent survey.
"For whatever reason there seems to be a disconnect with people feeling they don't need to buckle up when riding as a passenger in rear seats, and this is a concern," Poedubicky said.
During last year's "Click it or Ticket" campaign, 350 police agencies in the state handed out a total of 17,792 seat belt citations, 6,363 speeding summonses and made 976 impaired driving arrests during the two-week campaign.

We are minutes to the ocean beaches and within easy commuting of New York City and Philadelphia.
The location of Pine Beach is a draw for many, but the real quality of our borough lies with its residents. Our residents take pride and ownership in our borough. This is evidenced by the number of citizens who volunteer for various projects including the annual Pine Beach 5k. (pinebeach5k.com). If you would like to volunteer for any activity please contact me, or anyone in borough hall.
We provide senior services with informational meetings, lunches, and breakfast. Pine Beach also has numerous parks to stroll or run through, play soccer, baseball, or basketball. Being located along the Toms River we also provide bathing beaches with lifeguards during the summer months. For those into sailing or boating the Pine Beach Yacht Club (pbycnj.com) provides instructions for young and old.
I would invite you to take advantage of all that Pine Beach has to offer and to enjoy “the Pearl of the Toms River.”

Know the Bear Facts
Black Bears in New Jersey
Since the 1980s New Jersey's black bear population has been increasing and expanding its range both southward and eastward from the forested areas of northwestern New Jersey. While the majority of New Jersey's black bears do live in the northwestern portion of the state, sightings have been reported in all 21 of New Jersey's counties. Residents in every community as well as folks visiting the many parks, wildlife management areas, and other open spaces in bear country will benefit from knowing how to react to an encounter with a black bear. The most common bear problem New Jersey's residents experience is black bears getting into their garbage. Bears are attracted to neighborhoods by garbage odors, so properly securing your garbage is one of the best ways to prevent bears from becoming a nuisance in your community. Residents are encouraged to work within their community to make sure all garbage is secured and kept away from bears.
