The Traffic Bureau is tasked with the enforcement of traffic regulations. Such responsibilities include the enforcement of traffic laws, regulation of commercial vehicles, roadway signage and maintenance of statistical data with regard to traffic volume throughout the Township. The overall goal of the Traffic Bureau is that of voluntary compliance with posted speed limits and overall traffic laws and regulations as promulgated by the State of New Jersey and the Township of Rockaway. When voluntary adherence to motor vehicle laws and regulations fail, the Traffic Bureau initiates the three "E's" of Traffic Regulation:
•Evaluation - to determine the scope of the problem
•Education - to educate the motoring public on specific laws as they apply to the area - i.e. speed education trailer
•Enforcement - when education fails or requires further enforcement, officers will enforce motor vehicle laws through the issuance of motor vehicle summonses.
The Traffic Bureau also performs several "behind the scenes" functions such as speed analysis studies, signage request studies, and other specialized details as needed to keep the streets of Rockaway Township safe.
Here are some helpful links that provide information regarding some laws and regulations and also a form that can be utilized to report a specific Traffic Related request.
