Safe Passage Program

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), along with representatives from the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety, the New Jersey State Police (NJSP), the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA), the South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA) and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNY) partner together to display messages year round on statewide Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) to promote safety to the motoring public. These agencies also promote our nation's laws on a regular basis by supporting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) Safe Passage Calendar and the New Jersey Safe Passage PSA Program Calendar that includes safety campaigns such as Click It or Ticket, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, and Buckle Up, Every Trip, Every Time. NJDOT along with these agencies promote safety awareness to motorists via an Annual Safe Passage Program.
